I would like to ask which library has the newspapers of The Guardian and The Observer. And where can I find some DVDs of Circus performance? many thanks!… 632 28.2.2011 Hello to you! You can find the newest issues of The Guardian weekly in the following libraries: Kannelmäki, Kontula, Viikki and Vuosaari. No reservations to other libraries can be made. You can read The Guardian in Metsätalo(one of the university campus libraries). The address is Unioninkatu 40. The other newspaper you were asking for, The Observer, does not seem to be anywhere in the Helsinki region, so you'll have to make an interlibrary loan for The Observer. No DVDs of the sort you asked for can be found. There is unfortunately only a documentary film called "All together now", where the group Cirque du Soleil performs.
