Main Library (Jämsä)

Main Library Jämsä - A space for celebrating knowledge and experience

You can find us on Kenraalintie in Jämsänkoski. We are temporarily located in the labyrinthian but nevertheless beautiful and well-lit former premises of the city hall.

In the centre of Jämsä, there is a newspaper reading room at the Matkahuolto , and the library bus Severus stops in several locations.

In addition to our basic collection, we have many e-books, audiobooks, and digital audiobooks, as well as online newspapers. We have also recently added loanable boardgames and textbooks for upper secondary school. 

The library contains 60 artworks from the city’s art collection. You can also use the library premises to hold your own art exhibition, or to display your own photos, handicrafts or collectables. We have storytelling times for children once a month, and we run around 100 other events each year, including public book readings, visiting authors, digital workshops, and escape room games.

At the library, you can pay any outstanding city bills, buy meal tickets, and print out, copy or scan resources. For study or distance working, we offer several customer workstations and an open wireless network.

Please note that from 10 to 11 on weekdays the library is self-service only. During this time, you can of course return loans; take resources out using the self-service machines, and collect reservations.

We hope to see you soon!
