There are requirements based on the Finnish Library decree. You can find that at http://www.libraries.fi/en-GB/library-branch/basic-information-about-fi…, Section 4. In nutshell, 70 per cent of the personnel should have an education suitable for the library. That’s why it’s quite hard to get a job at the library without that education, at least in Helsinki and other big cities.

In addition, most of the libraries require that librarians speak Finnish, as it’s needed for customer service.
