Borrowing/exchanging books about Turkey in English (Istanbul)

Hi there, I am interested in reading books about Turkish/Ottoman history
and would prefer to borrow the books from a library or do a book exchange with someone, rather than buying them which is impractical for me at the moment.
Can anyone recommend somewhere where I can borrow books in English - a university or city library? Do universities let you join their libraries I wonder without
being a fulltime student? I have tried to contact the British Council to find out if
they have any library there but haven't got an answer yet...Any help would be great thanks...
