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. Plan your visit to Turku City Library and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Turku vacation route planner.

  • It combines the comfort of a modern and vanhanrakennuksen parties and amicably. Good location and friendly staff.

  • The library is large and remarkably busy. One end is the older section which is currently used for music books (you can listen to vinyl on the machines there). I was impressed 
  • Nice quiet place for travellers. Interesting exhibitions, showcases a lot of range and a huge amount of leaves in different parts of the library. istuipaikkoja here and there and a nice atmosphere. A great kids section and a nice café.

  • Really cool library - you should try it. it´s free you know. Great selection of books, newspapers, magazines, music etc.
  • 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
