Etelä-Haaga library - An oasis in the middle of the park
Etelä-Haaga i.e. South Haaga library is a cosy, child friendly library with natural light streaming in through the windows. The South Haaga branch is a meeting place and a venue for the surrounding area and its residents, where everyone is welcome.
Drills and outdoor games
In the afternoons the library is filled with lively young students from the elementary school next door. They have the use of various board games, outdoor games, monthly storytelling sessions or the chance to play console games with friends.
For slightly older patrons we offer, for example, the use of a coffee vending machine, small summer terrace for enjoying the short Finnish summer and a recycling point for old books and unnecessary items from home, such as dishes or clothing. We lend out home energy monitors, rubbish pickers, Nordic walking poles and an exceedingly popular rotary hammer drill.
Dogs are also welcome to stop by the library.
Room of One’s Own and sewing
The spacious library consists of 620 square meters and is easily accessible to prams and wheelchairs. The access ramp is gentle and wide and there is also elevator access to the second floor. There are parking spaces right outside the library building and you can also leave your bike on one of the bicycle racks.
You can find Room of One’s Own upstairs. Patrons can reserve the recently refurbished room for studying, meetings or having perhaps a book club. You can also use a sewing machine to create your own fashion or play Xbox Kinetic to pass the time. Children’s section can be found on the first floor and Young Adult’s Corner on the second floor.
We offer a variety of events and activities for patrons of all ages. We warmly welcome you to Baby rhyme club, book clubs for either adults or young adults, fascinating storytelling sessions where you might learn fencing and all other various events that we host!
