Libraries

Municipal libraries, university libraries, polytechnic libraries, special libraries and libraries at educational institutions form part of the national and international information service network. Both municipal and research libraries are open to all.

In Finland the guiding principle in public libraries is to offer free access to cultural and information sources for everyone irrespective of their place of residence and financial standing. No fee is charged for either borrowing or the use of library collections at the library.
