Can I get an helmet library card if I’m not a permanent resident in Finland?
I’m a croatian citizen (EU) and I’m currently in Finland, staying here for a month. I would like to visit libraries in Helsinki and Vantaa area in order to study or maybe borrow some books.
If you have an address here in Finland, you can get a library card. A long term hotel address is also acceptable. If you don't have a permanent address here you will be issued a temporary library card for one year. You can obtain a library card by presenting either your ID-card or You passport.
Library card in Finland is free of charges. Helmet library card is joint card shared by Espoo, Helsinki, Kauniainen and Vantaa. You can use same library card in all Helmet-libraries.
