Dear media professional!

Please contact us if you need information about Central Library Oodi. We will find you experts to interview, provide you with background materials, tell you about our visual materials, forward tips for stories and give you facts and figures.

Oodi is a public space, where you can arrange small-scale photo shoots. However, always let us know in advance of yours plans at oodi@hel.fi. Keep the following in mind: Our customers must not be clearly visible in the pictures. On the north side of the third floor (children’s section) you are not allowed to take photographs, as children are not allowed to be photographed without parental permission. Any photo shoots must be carried out so that no customer spaces, walkways, stairs, visually impaired information signs or other services are made unavailable due to the shoot. Photography must also not disturb the customers or staff’s work in any way. We have drawn such a line that customer interviews (eg. in a TV program) are prohibited, because we want our customers to be able to visit the library in peace and quiet. But if you want to take a general picture for an interview, it is allowed. Interviews can be done at Kansalaistori. Interviews that have been agreed in advance can be arranged at Oodi.
