Do libraries charge patrons for overdue materials? 41 Public libraries in Finland do charge patrons for overdue materials. The fee is not the same in every library, for example in Turku it is 30 cents/loan/day and in Helsinki it is 20 cents/loan/day. Also, at least in these two libraries, you don't need to pay overdue fees for childrens' books. There is also a maximum overdue fee per loan (in Turku 9 € and in Helsinki 6 €) so even if your loan is overdue for a longer time you don't have to pay more than that. If you can't return the loan at all, you'll have to compensate for the item (how much depends usually on how expensive the item was and if it was very new or old and worn).
In Turku public libraries, do teachers have to take 1st grade school children to the libraries to make children their library cards? In Helsinki, I think so… 52 A first grader can get a library card with a library card application form that one of the parents/guardians has filled in and signed. A teacher can not sign the form on behalf of the parent/guardian. The form can also be found online on our website vaski.finna.fi. A child can get a library card when visiting a library with a teacher if they have the signed form with them. The card has to be retrieved from a library, we do not deliver them to schools.
I am in tampere. I borrowed the book from korso helmet liberary. How do I renew the loan? 128 Books from the Helmet libraries can only be returned to one of their own libraries. If you have not saved an email address to your library card, you can only reset your pin number in-person at the service counter of any Helmet library. If creating a new pincode is not working for other reasons, get in contact with the Helmet libraries directly. This is done by going to their website - Libraries and services | Helmet - and selecting a library, which provides the phone number and e-mail contact details for particular libraries within the Helmet network. They can further assist you on creating a new pin code and may be able to renew your loans remotely, provided they do not have reservations.

Does it cost to print in the library? If I need to print many pages should i bring my own printing paper? 384 If you're visiting Turku city libraries on normal opening hours then you don't need to bring any printing paper with you. It then costs 20 cents per page to print (i.e. 40 cents per double-sided printing). The price is the same whether you print in color or in black and white. If, on the other hand, you are visiting one of the branch libraries during its open hours when there's no staff present, then you actually do need to bring your paper with you. At this situation there's no additional fee for printing of course.

What are the roles of shool library in improving the reading habit of secondary school students 540 In Finland municipalities are not obligated to have school libraries. Most schools have a library although they may be outdated and have a rather modest collection. Many schools cooperate with the public library. Some municipalities have their own information literacy curriculum which schools and libraries have compiled together. Accordingly to the National Core Curriculum for Basic Education organizations like museums, sport facilities, art centra, public libraries are seen as learning environments.

I am writing an academic article about public libraries and I need to send out my online questionnaires to Finnish public librarians. Who should I contact or… 798 There are several possibilities where to send your online questionnaires, depending on the nature of your survey. You have to decide to whom you want to send your questionnaires. You could think about whether you would like to send the questionnaires for the library administration (library directors etc.) or individual librarians. It could also be useful to think which libraries you want to include. The provincial libraries are the libraries that are in charge of the public library service in their regions. In addition to them, there are several smaller libraries and branch libraries. Frank Metasearch -site includes a list of all Finnish public libraries and provincial libraries: http://monihaku.kirjastot.fi/en/. After deciding which…

I'm researching library in Finland. I have two questions. Question 1: When and where the first library was established in Finland? One source says that … 1146 Both answers are correct in a way. In 1794, the first "public" library, Vaasan lukukirjasto, the Vaasa Reading Society, was founded. "Although the Reading Society was originally meant for its members or partners, other people were also allowed to borrow books for payment. The Reading Society in Vaasa was thus both a “proprietary” and “subscription” library. It is a rather new idea to consider the Vaasa Reading Society to be the beginning of public libraries in Finland. It is usually thought that libraries which provided reading for the Finnish-speaking less-educated majority were the predecessors of public libraries in Finland. However, reading societies at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries, which were an undertaking…
