Opening hours and contact information

Due to corona virus epidemic the meeting and collection facilities of the Helmet libraries are closed to customers, but the libraries will remain open in limited form for short-time visits. See services of the Helmet libraries during spring 2021.

Vantaa has 11 libraries, some of which also serve as self-service libraries. In addition, two bookmobiles visit schools, day-care centers and areas that have no local library of their own. You also have access to all the more than 60 metropolitan area Helmet libraries.
