You wrote in English so we could suggest that the obvious reason is that You are not staying permanenntly in Finland?

So my youngest child has managed to lost one of my rented books, how can I "replace" the book and how does it work? Thank you. 677 17.4.2014 Hi! You can either pay the book in any of the HelMet-libraries or replace the book with a same book. From our user regulations: "Compensating for items and paying the fees You will have to compensate for lost or damaged material by paying a price which is charged according to the item’s value registered in the library’s database. If you wish to substitute a similar item for the material lost or damaged, you will have to settle each case separately with the library." http://www.helmet.fi/Preview/en-US/Info/Using_the_library/Fees(37613)

At that time one of its aims was to bolster the nascent independence movement in Finland, which was still under Tsarist Russia. Finland was a Russian Grand Duchy until Lenin granted Finland independence in 1917. The reasons for Finland’s territorial expansionism are many and varied.
