We warmly invite bookworms and avid readers alike to visit our small library! The library offers a small but interesting selection of books, mainly in German but also in Finnish and Swedish. The collection consists mostly of contemporary Finnish and Finnish-Swedish authors, primarily in German translation. In addition, there is a selection of non-fiction and art books, scholarly volumes, children’s books and books for adolescents, comics and poetry. The books may be borrowed for a lending period of four weeks.
Our library room is also open to those who would like a quiet space to concentrate on their work. Secure Internet access is available to guests of the Finnish Institute. The most recent editions of the Finnish magazines Suomen Kuvalehti and Image can also be read in the library. In addition, it is also possible to read the e-editions of the newspapers Helsingin Sanomat and Hufvudstadsbladet on the Institute’s laptop available to guests.
