Multilingual library’s task is to offer immigrants literature in their mother tongue. The multilingual collection has library items for adults, young people and children in approximately 80 languages and consists of books, music, movies and periodicals.
The Multilingual Library collection is situated in the Pasila Main Library and can be search via Helmet-catalogue: www.helmet.fi. Multilingual items can be borrowed with a Helmet library card. When searching from the Helmet-catalogue, you should limit your search to a specific language since the multilingual collection is not separated from the rest of the Helmet-catalogue.
Libraries can request interlibrary collections from the Multilingual Llibrary. Multilingual items can also be found in local libraries. You can ask for more information about the multilingual collection as well as multilingual library’s activities from your own local librarian.
