New main library opens in Kirkkonummi

Kirkkonummi municipality opens a new library building in the heart of the municipality. The brand new building Fyyri hosts the main library, a youth club, a music school for children, a residents’ park, and a café. The new library offers possibilities for all kinds of activities. In addition to traditional library services, Fyyri has a makerspace area, a music studio and rehearsal room, and a stage with cutting edge technology for creative activities, as well as gaming and meeting rooms and a gallery area for art exhibitions.

Fyyri is designed by the Finnish JKMM architects who have also designed the Turku and Seinäjoki public libraries as well as the library of Aalto University. The new building is built around the old main library, which was opened in 1982. With the new building, the floor space is now doubled compared to the old library space.

You can read more about Fyyri on the Kirkkonummi website in Finnish and in Swedish. Check out also the digital brochure of the library in Finnish, and don’t forget to have a look at the photos of the beautiful new building.
