Lumo library undergoing renovation

Lumo library’s customer premises will be completely renewed in connection with the floor and lighting renovation. The library will be closed because of the renovation on December 3. The renovation is likely to continue till the end of February 2019.   

All materials borrowed at Lumo library can be returned to any other Helmet library or mobile library. You can pick up your holds from Tikkurila library beginning on Dec 3. If your request for material is still open, you can change the pickup library  by logging into your account on Helmet.fi.

How to modify your requests

Mobile library stop will start near Lumo in December. During the renovation, Korso residents can also transact at Koivukylä library.  

Premises for reading and engaging in hobbies   

Korso residents’ wishes have been implemented when planning the library. We will offer relaxed reading spaces in the downstairs big library hall, on the upstairs hobby premises, and in the reading room.   

The downstairs entrance will open directly to a fast-transaction area and event space. The fan-like set of shelves downstairs will be a thing of the past: the library will have room for different functions.   

A well-lighted and quiet corner deeper in the adult department will be reserved for those wanting to read newspapers and magazines. A small-readers’ area will be built right next to the fairytale room, and its furnishings will account for ideas proposed by Korso families with children. The young readers’ premises will include, for instance, a game room.   

Efficient activity premises upstairs   

The silent reading room will remain upstairs. The room’s furnishings are ideal for a relaxing breather, for example, for those who are working hard on admission exams. Upstairs premises will also house meeting and teamwork premises whose flexible interior decoration includes, among other things, adjustable desks and acoustic furniture. Acoustic walls and partitions also help reduce noise. The completed premises will highlight shades of blue and aquamarine.

The renovation is likely to continue till the end of February 2019. Opening of the library will be announced on Helmet.fi  and on Vantaa.fi.
