Public library

First of all, the use of the public library is free. Anyone with a Finnish Personal Identity Code can apply for a library pass to borrow books and allowing entry outside regular opening hours. Secondly, our library is so much more than a library. Actually it is more like a community living room, and an extended office. In addition to the library collection, including sections of foreign language books and magazines, you will find computers, printers, scanners and a copy machine. Free WIFI is also available.
