Finland's flagship library Oodi is open to the public in Helsinki. It is the largest and arguably most lavish library in the Finnish capital. Although it's technically a library, it goes far beyond merely a place to borrow books. The facility features many spaces for meeting people and socialising, and offers the opportunity for people to participate in activities like readings, workshops and special events.
