I am living in Kajaani and noticed that with Overdrive.com, I can borrow books from Helsinki City Library (HelMet) using the library card. Unfortunately I do not have a library card to use HelMet so I would like to know if someone from Kajaani can register for the library card. If yes, can this be done electronically without me being present in the Helsinki area?
I am sorry, but in order to get a library card in HelMet-system, you have to visit the Helsinki metropolitan area personally and prove your identity. Your address in the card can quite well be in Kajaani.
In future we probably will have more equal system in the whole country and then this will be easier.
