|Good morning from Barcelona, I would like to know ho many bookmobiles are in Finland and, if it is possible, could you tell me where can I find more…
||In 2016 there were 137 book mobiles in Finland, 6 675 088 items were borrowed from the book mobiles, and there were 10 414 book mobile stops in the country, http://tilastot.kirjastot.fi/index.php?orgs=1&years=2016&stats=100 . More library statistics can be found in the Finnish Public Libraries Statistics, http://tilastot.kirjastot.fi/index.php?lang=en . There is a mobile library site, but helas, it's only in Finnish, https://www.kirjastot.fi/kirjastoautot. There is a contact person, however, you could write to, Heli Itkonen-Vesa (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask for more detailed information. There is a nice video about mobile library activity and cooperation in northern Finland, Lappland, http://now.libraries.fi/mobile.html in…
|Mannerheim statue in Seinäjoki
||There is a small publication about the parks in Seinäjoki "Seinäjoen puistot ja viheralueet" published by the city of Seinäjoki in 2015. There is a short text concerning the Mannerheim Park and statue. You can find this publication on the website of the city of Seinäjoki: https://www.seinajoki.fi/material/attachments/seinajokifi/asuminenjaymparisto/puistotjametsat/BcqFeoDsJ/sjk_puistoesite_2015_web.pdf
There are also too older booklets that might be useful for your project. Unfortunately they are not in digital form.
Ahti Mäntylä: Seinäjoella sijaitsevien sotiimme liittyvien sotamuistomerkkien kertomaa, 2000 (What the war memorials in Seinäjoki tell us)

|I was trying to reserve a CD from a band named Unit 4 +2, and there didn't seem to be a way to do it. There doesn't appear to be a "Request It" button at this…
||Right now the only copy of the CD has been taken aside for some repair operation (I cannot see the reason). Unfortunately you just have to wait and hope that eveything goes well and the CD is soon again in circulation. If that happens, you see the possibility to reserve it as well.
|I would like to know if there is help with translation from English to Finnish language service? Is it free? How much does it cost? Thanks
||Unfortunately Helmet Libraries does not have a translation service.
Helmet Libraries offers only Finnish language cafés and discussion groups. Participation is free of charge.https://www.helmet.fi/en-US/Libraries_and_services/Multilingual_Library…
|What do you reckon the classification systems will be like in 100 years?
||Are you asking about the classification systems in the libraries? If not, your answer is not possible to answer in any way. Even if we talk just about library classification systems, 100 years ahead is too much to predict anything. But if there are still organized collections of documents in 2118, some kind of classification is most likely still needed. Even if the libraries and the data bases are not anymore conducted by humans but by machines, there must be ways to analyze the documents according to their contents. The complexity of the data in 2118 probably means, that today's classification systems are not enough, much broader and more complex systems will be needed.
To take just one example, music, which is my area of expertise, one…

|I'm a student in tampere and want to borrow ebook from helmet. But I don't have a library card. Can i order one and get it by posti? Thank you so much Phuong,
Unfortunately you cannot get a Helmet library card by post. You have to visit a Helmet library to get a card. Here is an excerpt from the user regulations:
"You can get a personal library card, the right to borrow and a PIN code at any Helmet library or mobile library. You will get the library card when you state your address and present a valid ID card with a photograph and personal identity number accepted by the library. To be able to receive a library card you need an address in Finland. The first library card is free of charge. If you do not have a Finnish personal identity number, your library card is valid for twelve months at a time."

||Tricky question! I would personally look for the answer in different hiking guides. You might want to browse through a few books before finding the right one. Why not start with "The ultimate hiker's gear guide", which can be found in the Helmet libraries:
If you want to search the Helmet database yourself, you can use the search term "erätaidot" as a starting point.
This is also a subject found on various hiking pages online. Try googling terms like "hiking" and "different temperatures". This page lists a few suggestions for several weather conditions:

You can contact Statistics Finland and The National Archives of Finland to find more about your uncle's death and ask if they can find his death certificate. Vaasa's church registry office can also help you. I'll leave contact information to all of these here. The links should lead you to English versions of the sites but if they don't you can change the language from the top of the pages.
