Turku City Library, Turku

(4.7/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you have this library would go every day. I like cozy library. Eat a delicious lunch at the cafe in the back, or placed in the eye-popping design of each space and books, but read the book slowly Norse workmanship design chair. A warm soup. This is a very stylish library.

  • An excellent place to read, or just to sit and relax in front of the huge windows. It is good to go in, sit down and just get away from all the commerzialism in the town.

  • Tosi hyvä
  • The most amazing library in the world - it is large has many facets and is seemingly designed with areas and resources to suit every possible kind of person and o is especially useful to newcomers who need peace and to get information in the way they want it often with the help of friendly helpful staff who are often multilingual. This library, a safe haven, was for me was the first place I was part of and I belonged to as they quickly made me a member and even offered me a design option on the card itself. All information is here. You can get online use the computers or use wifi. It is for me the focal point. They have some fantatsic books here for all my family. Easy checking in and out options. Book crossing. Books in all languages. It is always busy which shows how much of an essential service and much loved place it is. Go in and look around - walk through from old to new just to look at the architecture.
  • A great library
