|I have been studied about Finland's Mobile library. Do mobile libraries visit schools and daycare centers almost every day? Specifically, how often? Thank you…
|Finnish libraries are in that way independent that their mobile libraries have own time tables and schedules. That means that they can have very different resources and that every mobile library does not circulate every day. If you want to study the activities or timetables of mobile libraries, you can find them here, https://directory.libraries.fi/search?q=mobile%20libraries. It is possible however that not every library has included opening hours and routes of their mobile services here. In that case you can ask the library in question, the contact information can be found in the same directory. This kind of information can't be found in our statistic database, https://tilastot.kirjastot.fi/?lang=en.

We can't individualize persons who use mobile libraries, because the library card is use in all the service points of the library in the city or municipality, for example if you have a library card to Helmet (Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Kauniainen city libraries), you can use it in every service point of the city libraries in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen including mobile libraries.
2. In Finland we have had a mobile library system for so long, that people see it as a normal part of the library. We have also long distancies in almost every other part of the country than the south, in many parts of…
|Mobile libraries in Finland
|Stara and Skidi are both children's mobile libraries in Helsinki, so there is no difference between them in content. The names, Stara and Skidi, are Helsinki slang. Stara means an old person in Helsinki slang (Stara was formerly known as a mobile library mostly for adults.) Skidi is a slang word for a child (formely Skidi was for children). In Finland, mobile libraries usually have names, they are not considered just as vehicles :)
In the website 'Finnish Public Libraries Statistics' a loan amount for the mobile library means the amount of loans that people have borrowed. https://tilastot.kirjastot.fi/?lang=en
One mobile library can carry approximately 3500 books (it depends on how full mobile libraries are packed).
