I'm not sure is this the right place to ask , but do you happen to know if and where it is possible to buy "pikku prinssi" in German? 237 4.12.2006 If the book you're asking for isn't found in the stores, ask the staff if it can be ordered for you. I checked websites of the two big bookstore chains, Suomalainen kirjakauppa and Akateeminen kirjakauppa, and according to their internet stores there are available prints of "Der kleine Prinz". Akateeminen promises to have it in 1-2 days, via Suomalainen kirjakauppa it takes 2 weeks. Contact the stores for more info.
How do you say in Finnish: "Set and maintain boundaries"? 233 24.3.2022 Translation isn't easy. In most cases, you need to know more how and where the sentence is used. Like in this case: what kind of boundary is being set and maintained? A literal boundary line between neighbours or countries? More abstract concept, like personal boundaries in a certain situation? Perhaps "Asettaa ja ylläpitää rajoja" would work in both cases? If this is about personal boundaries, I might add a possessive affix.

Why do you have books that are fom uncompleted series? I mean you have Jane Casey's The reckoning The last gril The kill and After the fire, but not The… 230 6.9.2018 I cannot answer for Jane Casey case especially, but in general there are at least three reasons, why a library collection does not necessary have all the books from a series. 1. The series has been complete, but during the years copies have been lost or stolen and new copies have not been purchased. 2. If the missing ones are the newest in the series, they are probably not yet in the collection but will be there later. The customer may always ask for the situation. 3. In some cases the staff does not know, if a book is part of a series or some parts of the series are already out of print, when the library would like to buy them. The customers of HelMet libraries can always make an acquisition request. The library is just happy if the…
: My partner and I were wondering if our local libraries accept book donations in Finland. We have books in other languages (Spanish, Swedish, English) that we… 229 16.7.2018 Hi! Basically yes, but it depends so much on the exact titles you have to offer. If the library (system) already has enough of that title, the answer is always "thanks but no thank you!". Especially when we are dealing with books in other languages than Finnish most of the smaller libraries are probably not willing to be active at all. If possible, visit the main library in Pasila and ask for the staff of the Multilingual Library or send them e-mail at monikielinen.kirjasto@hel.fi or make a phone call (09) 3108 5402 And please remember that this is the moment of the year, when most professional librarians are on vacation! 1-2 months later everything is easier...

My last name is Mantta with the dots over the a’s. What is it’s meaning? Thanks 225 26.8.2020 The name Mänttä is also an old place name, which is nowadays a town in Finland. The place name Mänttä comes from an old house which Tuomas Niilonpoika Mäntsä (1570–1618) founded in Keuruskoski in the wilderness of Sääksmäki:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A4ntt%C3%A4 I found two different theories about the name's meaning. One theory is that the word is derived from old Swedish word "mäntare", which means person who process leather or does tanning. So it is possible that the first person with that name was a professional tanner. Other theory is that it might derive from German name Menze. Tuomas Niilonpoika Mäntsä (Mänttä)'s family has their own society, which might interest you also:https://mantsa.yhdistysavain.fi/ References: Mikkonen…
