|Dear Librarian, I am Latha from Vantaa. Is there any sewing classes are going on around in any of the city libraries in Vantaa, Espoo or Helsinki. If so, let…
|There isn't any sewing classes at the moment in the Helmet libraries (Helsinki Metropolitan Area Libraries). Any library customer can reserve and use the sewing machines freely and there is also some guidance available in the libraries.
Of course you can suggest sewing classes to libraries and offer your help. There is sewing machines in libraries under the following web address: http://www.helmet.fi/en-US/Libraries_and_services . Clicking the library name will bring you to the page where you'll find the contact information of the library.
|I want to ask if i request a book which is currently not available in the library, do i have to pay any fees?
|No, as long as the book you reserved is part of a collection of any Helmet-library (public library in Espoo, Helsinki, Kauniainen or Vantaa) making a reservation is free.
|Could you kindly provide some information on hosting events at the library? We would like to host some English story time for children and wondering if there…
|Best way to do this is to contact libraries directly, as every library decides of their events independently. You can find the contact details in the HelMet-homepage.
I am certain that most of the libraries in Espoo would be interested in having a story time in English!
|I am a member of the library. My library card is getting expired on 14-Dec-2012. How do I renew my library card. What is procedure.
|It’s very easy to renew your library card. Just go to your local HelMet Library, and take your ID card or passport with you. There you can ask the library staff to renew your card by showing your library card and ID card or passport.
If you have a Finnish social security number (“henkilötunnus”), they can add it to your library card, and after that there is no need to renew the card. If you don’t that number, you will have to renew your card in the future, too.
You can find all the HelMet Libraries and the contact information at http://www.helmet.fi/en-US. Welcome to renew your card!

|My question is i wanted to learn the finnish languge and i whant to know what to read or if there are any cds?
|You can search the Helmet library database in the address www.helmet.fi - change language into English and then choose Keyword search. Write there "suomen kieli kielikurssit" (Finnish language, language courses) and choose cd as material type. There are several Finnish courses that also include cds.
If you already have library card and the secret number you can reserve the course you want. If not visit any library with an id that has your photo in it and you will soon have our library card and if the library you visit doesn't have any course in at the moment please ask help with ordering one.
