Library policy

In Finland the guiding principle in public libraries is to offer free access to cultural and information sources for all irrespective of their place of residence and financial standing.  The use of library collections at the library and borrowing are free of charge.

Library and information services promote:

  • equal access to education and culture
  • reading and art appreciation
  • constant development of knowledge
  • skills and citizenship skills
  • internationalisation
  • lifelong learning
