Welcome back to Hakunila library on September 19, 2022

Hakunila library will reopen its doors on Monday, September 19, at 8:00.  

The renovation of the library took four months, consisting of repairs improving the quality of the library's indoor air, in addition to which, floor surfaces and lighting, among other things, were renewed. The library also acquired new furniture.  

The renovation provided us with a good chance to rearrange the library premises. We have switched the places of adult and children’s departments, which, for example, allowed us to restrict the adults’ reading and checkout premises as a clearly independent area of its own. We also moved the reservation shelves and checkout machines to a new place.  

On the opening day, September 19, from 5pm to 6.30pm, coffee, tea and juice will be served. 

Regular event and group activities will resume at the beginning of October. We will be celebrating the reopening of the library on October 1, 2022. Check out more detailed information online at: helmet.fi/hakunilankirjasto
