Do I need to install ionic in my angular project if i´m using a custom UI Library done with ionic?

I have created an Angular project and I want to use a custom Ionic UI library that I did on that project.

If I just add the library to the project (npm link myLibrary), the UI Ionic components are not displayed as buttons, lists or inputs for example until I install Ionic also on the app.(ng add @ionic/angular).

Taking in account that Ionic is already on the imported UI library, it is possible to use the Ionic components on my app without installing Ionic again there?
