I am a new school librarian at an English language school here in Helsinki. We are doing a weeding of the collection this summer. I am looking for a company or organization that recycles old books. Can you provide me with contact information or perhaps give me the name of someone at Helsinki City Library who could help me. Thank you.
I have searched the Internet pages for book recycling in Helsinki and have not found anything.
In some Helsinki City Libraries there is every now and then recycling point or book trolley for old books. You can leave extra books there and take some books to read.
You could contact Tytti Tuunanen Chief Librarian of Children's department of Helsinki City Library, main Library in Pasila
There is also international school in Vantaa: The International School of Vantaa http://www.edu.vantaa.fi/isv/AboutISV/AboutIsvPage.php
Could it be a nice idea to arrange happening in your school where to recycle books and other jumble.
Helsinki Metropolitan Area Reuse Centre have also books in Lönnrotinkatu 45
