Besides offering a grand amount of books to everyone with a Vaski library card, the library has exhibitions, lectures and it hosts different kinds of events. Always something new to see. Also rents city bikes around summer months. *Logomo does this too

I have found very little libraries that have all the authors this one has. Anything you look for is there (if it is not, they order it for you) Very gentle people and nice calmed space

This library is pretty tiny but has everything to enjoy a good reading experience. Sofas where you can browse books and magazines in English and probably in your native language too.

The modern annex to the Turku City Library is an excellent piece of architecture but the result is not only good looking, it works. The users love the place which has become a second living room to many of the regular visitors. Definitely worth a visit, beautiful location near the Aura river bank.

I walked in to warm my hands a bit and check the place out. They have books in several languages, magazines, plenty of places to sit and a large bank of computers for members. Very nicely designed.
