OK, I like libraries, ever since I got to visit them, but this is like the dream of a modern library (the other dream is the shady, old library that smells like old books). This is really designed to be a library and it looks...More

Situated in the well known Alvar Aalto Center of Seinäjoki, the new libary is beautiful piece of modern architecture with still very cozy atmosphere. Especially children and young people have been taken carefully account in the design. There is a tunnel connecting the new to...More

Wow! Such a beautiful library with much open space. I was especially impressed with the children's area as there were many interactive and fun features, such as carpeted play cubes.

Thanks for your feedback! Nice to hear that you liked our library. I'd like to add that you can use computers in the main library up to 4 hours/day and if you have your own device the use of wi-fi is limitless.

Very nice and attentive staff, perfect place to go with kids. Not too much books, but was just enough for me while writing thesis. Maybe could be more english books added. Otherwise, very enjoyable and nice place to go.
