I barrowed somethings from Espoo Library then i moved to Hameenlinna. is it ok if I give my books to Hameenlonna Library? Thank You 5 21.9.2020 No, sorry, but you can't return books you borrowed from Espoo to Hämeenlinna. Espoo library belongs to Helmet libraries, and Hämeenlinna library to Vanamo libraries. You must return your loans from Espoo to Espoo or some other Helmet library. If you want to become a customer of Vanamo libraries, you need a new library card. You may obtain library card by presenting a photo ID at the service desk in any of the Vanamo libraries. Same card is valid in Hämeenlinna, Hattula, and Janakkala.

I recommend you to call to your local library and find out what happened there. Here we don´t solve out client´s loaning and returning issues because of the information security.  All libraries have machines where you can borrow and return your loans. Librarians will advice you more about these things at your local library.

Can you tell me when were the first public libraries appeared in Finland? And where they were built? Thank you. 1039 13.9.2008 Public libraries in Finland celebrated their bicentennial in 1994.

The Reading Society in Vaasa was thus both a "proprietary" and "subscription" library. (Ilkka Mäkinen: Reading Societies in Finland, in Yleiset kirjastot Suomessa. Vaasa 1994, p.104) The library of the Vaasa Reading Society can be considered to be the beginning of public libraries in Finland. The first public library in Helsinki was founded in 1819, and in Viipuri a public library was…
