Almost all Finnish cities and municipalities have a municipal or city library. At the libraries you can borrow books, read magazines and newspapers, use a computer, study, or participate in various events.

Most libraries usually have a reading room. This is a quiet space suitable for reading and doing your homework in silence, for example.

You need a library card to borrow books. You can apply for one at any library. The library card is free of charge. If you lose your card, you can get a new one for a fee.
