The rainbow shelf improves the discoverability and equality of LGBTQIA* material in the library. Library staff stock the rainbow shelf with materials for adults, young people and children that describe the life of sexual and gender minorities and rainbow culture mainly through positive representation. Homophobic and transphobic material does not belong on the rainbow shelf. Rainbow shelves can be found in several Helmet libraries, and all their materials can be reserved and borrowed in accordance with the Helmet rules of use. The material placed in the rainbow shelves of Helsinki City Library can be found in the Helmet database with the search word “sateenkaarihylly” (“rainbow shelf”).
It is your own responsibility if you return your loans via the returning box. If you return items via the returning box when the library is closed, you cannot get a receipt because the loans are not registered as returned into the library system this way. The library staff records the items returned via the returning box as returned only on the next opening day of the library. Items returned in the returning box can result in penalty fees until the returns are recorded.
Customers have the use of Stadinetti, a free-of-charge wireless network provided by the City of Helsinki.
