A great library for a nation of booklovers and so much more



  Where can you enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat, see a film, attend a conference or read a book all in the same building? At Helsinki Central Library Oodi! But Oodi is about so much more than books.


  Located in the heart of Helsinki, Oodi is a masterpiece of architecture that has become a symbol of the country's loyalty to education, learning and innovation. Since its opening in December 2018, it has become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.


  The name “Oodi” comes from the Finnish word “ode,” which means an ode or a tribute. It is designed to be a welcoming and inclusive space that encourages learning and community engagement with spaces for both quiet and noisy activities.
