Oodi’s collection includes about 100,000 items available to borrow. There is material for children, young people and adults in almost 20 languages. Most of the material is located on the third floor in Book Heaven. From Oodi’s first floor, you can grab best sellers and paperbacks with a short loan period.
Oodi hosts a large collection of sheet music, an extensive collection of comics and many different console and board games. In Book Heaven, you will also find the Rainbow Shelf, which offers literature and films related to sexual and gender minorities. The material for young people is placed in a central location next to the Rainbow Shelf.
All Oodi’s newspapers and periodicals are to be found in Book Heaven. In addition to traditional newspapers and magazines, we also have plenty of newspaper tablets, which you can use to access digital provincial papers and thousands of foreign ones.
If you don’t find the item that you want in Oodi’s Book Heaven, you can reserve it from other Helmet libraries in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area: at your disposal are 3.4 million works and a comprehensive e-library.
