Hello I'm a student from Spain and I woul like to known if i could borrow some books from a public library of Finland without being a finnish citizen.
Thank you for your time.
Public libraries in Finland usually issue cards also to people who are not permanent residents. You need to have address in Finland.
If You are studying in the metropolitan area You can use the services of the HelMet Libraries. You can obtain a HelMet library card and PIN code from any Helmet library by providing your address and presenting a valid photographic proof of identity with your personal identity code approved by the library. You need to have an address in Finland to get a library card.
If You don't have the Finnish social security number, the card will be valid for one year.
Welcome to HelMet libraries.
