In Helsinki opened new public library at the city centre. We Finns respect our libraries very much and use them for multiple purposes additional to normal book lending.

(Sorry that pictures far from perfect, had first quick visit and took couple of snaps. Need to go later with more time to spend)

Wood is used heavily in the facade, of course

One can borrow e.g. sewing machine and other tools to work there.
There are also meeting facilities and studios for music, photography and video available for free. And gaming rooms for Web games and e-sport.

Secret room
Behind the shelves there is a story telling room for the youngest. It's hidden and can be opened outside if you just figure out how. These kids are just about to walk in, they know how to open the hidden shelf door. Nice detail, I must say
