Library welcomes everyone

Every municipality in Finland has a public library. The library is a meeting place and cultural centre. The library is meant for children, young people, women and men. In the library you can read, spend some time, meet friends and attend events.

The library personnel will help you, answer your questions and present the library. The library is a free-of-charge service meant for all residents.

In the library, you can
  • borrow books, magazines, music and videos
  • use the library's computers and other electronic equipment
  • attend book clubs, events and courses
  • ask the personnel for expert help
  • use the library's facilities, such as reading rooms.
More information is available from the libraries and their websites.

Almost all library services and events are free of charge.

In order to borrow materials, you need a valid library card. The other services can be used without a library card.
