What was the cost and source of funding for the Seinäjoki city library?
In Finland the libraries are funded by tax revenues. So the source of funding for the library was partly state aid and partly it was paid by the city of Seinäjoki.
The library building was finished in 1965 and the cost was then 1 041 145,86 Finnish marks. It would be about 9 001 222,20 Finnish marks in the value of mark in 2001. If we change it in to euros it would be about
1 514 000 euros. As you can see the cost of the building was very low. Nowadays the cost of building a library would be twice as much.
