Residents selected books

Residents were keen to select books in English for the Helsinki City Library in October. The library will order more than 600 books, which will be made available for borrowing in the English collection at Pasila Library.

“It is really wonderful that people are interested in literature and the collections in libraries. The collection accumulation work requires input from both librarians and patrons. The results were so encouraging that we plan to include residents in the book selection process also in the future”, says Service Supervisor Kirsi Salminen from the Purchase and Cataloguing Office of Helsinki City Library.

Helsinki expects vast growth, most of it in the inner city. Ville Lehmuskoski oversees efforts to keep Helsinki moving as the brand new CEO of Helsinki City Transport.

“We can’t put more cars on streets. The answer in the inner city is public transport by rail – trams and the metro,” Lehmuskoski says, pointing out that rail has the biggest capacity of all modes of public transport.
