1. You can study information and library studies in many places in Finland depending on the level you want to reach. You can do higher level studies in three universities: Tampere, Oulu and Åbo Academy (=Swedish speaking uviversity in Turku).Tampere University is maybe the most wellknown of these.

You can also do the business school level studies in Seinäjoki, Oulu, Vaasa, Turku and Helsinki. There are also various open university courses for basic level information studies after which you can continue your studies in the above mentioned places, but you have to pass the entrance exam. You can find the details in the following link.

2. Library is an old institution in Finland. The early libraries were founded by amateurs who wanted to educate ordinary/poor people. Education has always been important in Finland and most people want to read and educate themselves all their lives.

The library law defines the duties of each commune to organize the public library services. These services are free for everyone and guarantee the equal access to information.

You can study the library statistics from the following link.
