I am a member of the library. My library card is getting expired on 14-Dec-2012. How do I renew my library card. What is procedure. 9453 22.10.2012 It’s very easy to renew your library card. Just go to your local HelMet Library, and take your ID card or passport with you. There you can ask the library staff to renew your card by showing your library card and ID card or passport. If you have a Finnish social security number (“henkilötunnus”), they can add it to your library card, and after that there is no need to renew the card. If you don’t that number, you will have to renew your card in the future, too. You can find all the HelMet Libraries and the contact information at http://www.helmet.fi/en-US. Welcome to renew your card!
