Cash payments in Espoo libraries will come to an end on 31.10.2021

From the beginning of November Espoo libraries will no longer accept cash payments.

Cash payments have declined across the country while the use of card and online payments have increased. As a result of the pandemic the use of cash has decreased even more. Alternative payment methods are more hygienic and reduce the risk of theft. Receiving small sums and carrying out bookkeeping regularly has not been cost-effective either. 

Helmet libraries use the online payment system Maksukaista

Customers login to the online payment system with their library card number and pin code. All visible fees can be paid at once or just a selected amount. Once the payment has been made, it is removed from the customers information.
