What is the size of the Helsinki Library in relation to other libraries in the world? 770 27.7.2004 There are different types of libraries such as school, research and public libraries. Different library types have different tasks, and therefore their operational figures vary. Also, there are many different ways in which to assess these operations, for example, the number of library items, number of registered customers, number of loans, number of visits etc. By and large, it is very difficult to find mutually compatible statistics because library activities vary from one library type to another. Since you did not specify which particulars you are interested in, hear are two websites which contain overall worldwide library statistics. These, however, do not cover individual libraries such as the Helsinki City Library. http://www.ifla.…

What are the words of your National Anthem? Thank you. 758 17.11.2001 Finlands national anthem is called "Maamme", that is "Our Land" in English. The song is composed by Fredrik Pacius and the lyrics are written by J. L. Runeberg (originally a poem in the Swedish language; Finnish translation by Paavo Cajander). Nowadays everybody sings it in his/her mother tongue, but as 93 % of the Finns have Finnish as their mother tongue, the Finnish version is heard more often. Here are the Finnish words: Oi maamme, Suomi, synnyinmaa, soi sana kultainen! Ei laaksoa, ei kukkulaa, ei vettä rantaa rakkaampaa kuin kotimaa tää pohjoinen, maa kallis isien. Sun kukoistukses kuorestaan kerrankin puhkeaa; viel lempemme saa nousemaan sun toivos, riemus loistossaan, ja kerran laulus, synnyinmaa, korkeemman kaiun saa. Originally…
