Turku City Library, Turku

Traveler Resource · Hidden Gem · Library
Turku City Library includes multiple branches, but its main building represents a historical landmark in the city center. The building is actually a combination of old and new, with the old library from 1903 making up part of the structure while many modern conveniences, shelves, and design have all been added over the years. Locals visit to borrow books and international visitors come to admire the architecture. Inside the library browse exhibits of local artists' photography, paintings, and sculptures. A kids' area offers a play section full of toys and books. For Turku City Library and beyond, use our Turku online trip itinerary builder to get the most from your Turku vacation.
