What is Oodi?
Helsinki Central Library Oodi is a living meeting place at Kansalaistori square, right at the heart of Helsinki.
Oodi will complement the cultural and media hub formed by Helsinki Music Centre, Finlandia Hall, Sanoma House and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Oodi will be a non-commercial, urban public space that is open to all, right opposite the Parliament Building.
Oodi is a venue for events, a house of reading and a diverse urban experience.
It will provide its users with knowledge, new skills and stories, and will be an
easy place to access for learning, story immersion, work and relaxation. Oodi
is a library of a new era, a living and functional meeting place open for all.
