There is no special library dedicated to Tove Jansson, but in Tampere You can study Tove Jansson's Moomin works in a special museum called The Tampere Art Museum - Moomin Valley. The Museum is situated in the Tampere main library and it has a collection of Tove Jansson drawings and miniature works. More info on page
http://www.tampere.fi/muumi/english/index.htm.
The Exhibition even has a small database (in finnish) of the contents of Moomin books.
The Finnish Institute for Children's Literature -
Documentation and Information Centre for Finnish Children's Literature collects the works of finnish children's authors and also the studies and reference works. This Institute is also here in Tampere (http://www.tampere.fi/kirjasto/sni/sneinfo.htm).

The Finnish National Libraty in Helsinki
