There's a good starting point for your thesis on the site of the Ministry of Education:
http://www.minedu.fi/minedu/culture/library/public_libraries.html
There are also two shorter articles on the Internet that I believe you should check out. One is under the address http://www.uwasa.fi/~sukkula/juhlakirja/english.html
and written by Ilkka Mäkinen. The article
will provide you with a historical perspective. The other one is under
http://www.lib.hel.fi/julkaisut/media.html
and concerns the situation today.

There are also books on the subject, for instance:
Finnish public libraries in the 20th century. You can find more books on our database
