There are hundreds of libraries in Finland, both public libraries and university or special libraries.

The best place to start when looking for information on Finnish libraries is quite likely the web address http://www.libraries.fi/ . The web site is available in English language also.

"Libraries.fi provides access to Finnish Library Net Services under one user interface. The portal serves as a starting point especially for users seeking information about libraries, culture and information services. The services are meant to be every-day tools for library workers, but they are also available for anyone co-operating with or interested in library matters."

From the subpage http://www.libraries.fi/en-GB/libraries/ you can find many links to library web sites or to their online catalogues.

In general Finnish public libraries have quite broad collections ranging from children's entertainment to hard science, from books to music, videos and computer materials, and from materials in Finnish language to materials in many foreign and minority languages, and also trying to reflect the society and culture in all its forms and values without many restrictions.
