Börje the Reading Assistance Dog, Hunt the Mole game, open data applications and a mobile library shared and operated across country borders in Lapland are some examples of the topics presented in Imagine and Explore – Finnish Libraries Now!The website opens today, 10 August 2012 in connection with the World Library and Information Congress being held in Helsinki on 11-16 August.
The online material consists of articles, presentations and interviews, pictures, text and videos. It illustrates Finnish libraries from several, often surprising angles. The focus is on library users: how they are surprised, inspired and empowered in and by the Finnish libraries.
The information package has been financed by the Ministry of Education and Culture and produced by libraries and librarians across the country. You too can Imagine and Explore – Finnish Libraries Now!
