About the library


The City Library is situated in the city centre of Kauniainen, close to the railway. The building is recognisable by its white brick facade.


We are one of the four HelMet libraries. This means that you can also use the services of the libraries in Espoo, Helsinki and Vantaa with our library card. Similarly, the customers of other HelMet libraries are welcome to use our services!


We have operated in these current premises since 1986. However, library operations started in 1924 in Kauniainen.


In 2005, the library was renovated in order to increase the feel of space and to provide new services.


In autumn of 2007, construction work began in the city centre of Kauniainen. Approximately 200 new flats will be built next to the library. The library will remain inside the area under construction.


The library is open during the construction work. Traffic and parking arrangements have also been made in the area for the duration of the construction.
