You can get a library card if you have an address in Finland. Without Finnish personal identity number your card is valid for twelve months at a time.

To receive your card take a valid photo ID with you when you visit a library. Libraries in Helmet-area accept the following ID cards:

  • I.D. cards from EU countries
  • passports
  • Finnish driving licences
  • Finnish SII cards with photos, for those under 18 years also without photos 
  • resident cards issued by any reception centre in Finland
  • residence permit card issued by the Finnish Immigration Service.
