Finland is internationally known for a comprehensive library network, high user and lending rates and use of ICT in libraries. The vast majority of Finns are regular library users. Finns visit a library 10 times a year on average.
Library and information services promote equal access to education and culture; reading and art appreciation; constant development of knowledge; skills and citizenship skills; internationalisations; and lifelong learning. Libraries also contribute to the development of virtual and interactive web services and their educational and cultural content.
