Library services for immigrants
The library is open and free of charge to everyone: children, women and men.
The library is a place where you can spend time, meet friends and attend events. You can use computers, and study in the quiet reading and study areas. You can read online newspapers and magazines from around the world. You can borrow books, magazines, music, games and films – or a language course if you wish to teach yourself Finnish or Swedish.
The library staff is happy to help you with any questions.
