The Suomenlinna Library has been in operation since 1957 and is an important part of the cultural life on the island. The library often hosts events, performances and meetings with authors. It also offers newspapers and magazines to read and complementary use of a computer.
The Suomenlinna library is the smallest branch of the Helsinki City Library. The library’s own collection is small but materials can be ordered from all libraries in the greater Helsinki area.
Accessibility: The route from the main pier follows the wheelchair route. The library entrance has stairs. The stairs are equipped with handrails on both sides. The library premises can also be accessed through a side door. This route only has one step. The width of the doorway to the library’s public toilet is 80 cm but the facility itself is small.
