Sello Library

Library with happenings. Library where sky is the only limit. Library of sense and sensibility

I am a language and work trainee in Sello Library. My training here lasts for six weeks, and the purpose is to explore the Finnish work life and improve my Finnish language skills. I arrange reserved and returned books, and host Russian story hours. During the day, I talk with my colleagues, but I try not to torment them. My boss Satu speaks Finnish very clearly and I understand her. The library is a quiet and friendly place. It is a joy to work here.

Sello Library has 5 800 m² in two floors.

When entering the ground floor you will find on your left the Service Area and on your right our fascinating Lobby where various interesting discussions, musical & literary evenings and events take place.

Events and seminars are free of charge. Take a seat and spend a few minutes listening  - or the entire session for that matter.

Lobby is the place for meeting firends and colleagues. Or simply for resting your feet, reading, sitting and knitting. Or you can work with your laptop. Free WiFi is at your disposal.

First floor is a paradise for book-loving patrons who need a lovely place to read and study.  Get comfy on a nice modern chair or a sophisticated sofa, the choice is yours. Should you desire quiet space for studying and working, we provide that for you.

We really can say that only sky is the limit.  We have roof-windows up there.

Children   - our future!

Who could deny  it- children are the future.

Why not watch our Puppet Show perform, spend time with Börje, our reading-assisting dog or or play WII-games with your family?

Our various story-hours in different languages and after-school club are very popular

Youth - here and now!

Do you wanna dance?

Yes, there was a street dance and a competition last month at our library...

Hang out with our young patrons and feel young again.

The Young have found our Pointti. It is their territory. It is for relaxing, playing all sorts of games, finding interesting books, creating events in co-operation with the library staff or just hanging around.

No need to borrow a book!
