There are two libraries in Sipoo: the main library in Nikkilä and Söderkulla library. The library is open to all and it is free of charge. Dogs are welcome to the library.

In addition to books you can borrow magazines, movies, audio books, music and notes. You can also read newspapers, study, use a computer, listen to music, look at the exhibitions, participate in events or story times – or just spend some time here.
