Pohjois-Haaga (North-Haaga) library is small, but agile in its services. Situated in a former grocery store, it is mostly frequented by local residents and people working in the area. The library is the meeting place and heart of the local community. We strive to meet the customers’ needs and be close to them.
All services are literally within your reach. You have individual customer service, well organised children’s section, computers for public use, a coffee vending machine, many newspapers and magazines and a tablet to browse several papers. The sociable Haaga residents and the customer service with a bit of banter makes North-Haaga a busy and extremely well-liked library. The continuous art exhibitions and the library dog Hugo are also cheering up the customers. The library is accessible from the ground level and you can even come in with your dog. The library is reachable by public transport. There are five free parking spaces and a bicycle rack for the customers. During the summer months the library has a small terrace where you can read the paper while enjoying a cup of coffee.
In addition to borrowing books and DVD’s you can check out for e.g. Nordic walking poles, a rubbish picker, a pet travel carrier, a home energy monitor or a stepladder and a rotary hammer drill for some heavy-duty DIY. The available services include (colour) photocopying, printing and scanning. There is also a recycling shelf where the customers can bring their own books and other clean and unbroken items that need a new home. The library hosts a variety of events for different age groups: book clubs, discussions, author visits and events for children. Pohjois-Haaga Library has sister libraries in Etelä-Haaga and Munkkiniemi. All three libraries have the same head of library and they cooperate actively.
