Coffee mornings at the library and accessible culture

Turku City Library started coffee mornings on their Instagram account on 18 March 2020. During coffee mornings, for one hour, library workers respond to customer questions on Instagram live, give reading tips, talk about their work and interview writers.

You can join coffee mornings by following @turunkaupunginkirjasto on Instagram.

Don’t forget e-books! A wide selection of books and an opportunity to enter new worlds are just a few click away. In order to borrow e-materials, you only need your library card and pin code.
