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.
You can search for library material in the Helle online catalogue. You can also renew loans, reserve material and check your information in the online catalogue. The online catalogue can be found at the address https://helle.finna.fi.
