First, I would like to refer to a question answered in this service some years ago about Luku-Suomi ("Reading Finland") project (2001-2004): http://www.libraries.fi/en-GB/ask_librarian/question.aspx?ID=927122d6-6…

A leaflet in English has been published about the school libraries development project, a part of Luku-Suomi program:
A Good School Library. Authors: Hannele Frantsi, Kaarina Kolu , Seija Salminen. Year: 2006. Available as a PDF: http://www.oph.fi/download/47629_good_school_library.pdf

Articles concerning reading promotion among children and youth by public libraries in Finland:

Selesniemi, Jaana: "Creative writing and book recommendations." Scandinavian Public Library Quarterly; 2009, Vol. 42 Issue 2, p18-19

Kull-Poutanen, Margareta: "Digital skills for everyone." Scandinavian Public Library Quarterly, 2009, Vol. 42 Issue 3, p4-5

Hemming, Marjatta: "The role of public libraries in constructing knowledge." Scandinavian Public Library Quarterly, 2006, Issue 3, p18-22

Heikkilä, Mervi: "The plot thickens and the drama builds." Scandinavian Public Library Quarterly, 2007, Vol. 40 Issue 1, p8-9

Jokitalo, Päivi: "Read yourself to millionairedom". Scandinavian Public Library Quarterly, 2004, Issue 1, p8-9 (This article concerns mainly a reading competition for school children in Great Britain, but also contains information about Luku-Suomi ("Reading Finland") project in Finland 2001-2004.)

Heikkilä, Mervi: "Spotlight on children's poetry."
Scandinavian Public Library Quarterly; 2007, Vol. 40 Issue 4, p22-23
