Meeting and event facilities

A meeting room can be rented from the News Square (Uutistori) in the Main Library or online. The reservation application form will be processed within three weekdays. A confirmation message will be sent to your email if the application is accepted.

The renting is in effect after you have received the confirmation. The rent will be charged for reservations that have not been cancelled at least one week before the appointed time. Compelling exceptions will be negotiated separately. Unless otherwise agreed, a new reservation can begin no earlier than an hour after the previous event has ended.

The facilities are equipped with furniture and devices according to the wishes of the event organizer. Reservations of accessories should be made at least one week before the event. The fee can be paid in cash at the News Square (Uutistori) of the main library or it can be invoiced.
