All Vaasa city library locations will be closed during Christmas and New Year – so start to stock up on your holiday reading now.
The main library will be closed 20.12.2020–1.1.2021. Other library locations will close on 16.12.2020 and will open again 4.–7.1.2021. There will be no mobile library service 16.12.2020–11.1.2021.
All due dates and pick-up dates for reserved items will be automatically extended until the library reopens. The library’s e-resources will be available during the closure.
A quiet time for the library
The period around Christmas and New Year is usually a very quiet time for the library, and in previous years all the branch libraries have been closed during the holidays. This year, even the main library will close for Christmas and New Year, because the staff will be laid off for 14 days in December.
The book drops at Palosaari, Suvilahti and Variska libraries and at the main library will remain open at all times for item return. The drop boxes will be emptied regularly but there may be a delay in items coming off your account.
