About cookies in Finna

The cookie surveys of Finna services will be updated on November 1. Helle- libraries also use Finna, so the cookie updates also apply to the Helle- Finna online library. In practice, this means that there will be a new cookie bar in the online library, from which the user can manage cookies and get more information about how to use them.

Cookies are divided into several categories. The content can be accepted or blocked separately. For the website to work properly, some essential cookies need to be accepted. By accepting statistical cookies, you allow us to collect anonymous information about your visit for statistical purposes. Some of the embedded material in the online library are only visible if you accept certain cookies.

Cookies are regulated by law (917/2014) in section 205.

Changes in how to log in to PressReader from home 

It is no longer possible to log in to PressReader directly through the page where you can see your loans. Now you need to log in directly on to PressReader. The possibility to log in through your own page was always meant to be a temporary solution until all the Helle-libraries had the possibility to buy the product and we got the right log-in solutions working. Once all this was made possible, we can no longer offer the old way of log-in. 

How to log in: 

Open the PressReader website, www.pressreader.com , click Sign in and then choose the Libraries or Groups option. Next choose from the Select libraries list Library – Helle-libraries and type in your library card number and PIN code. You can also use the PressReader app. More instructions can be found on the e-material page in Helle-Finna. 


We apologize that the change happened without notice.

Libraries in Karjaa and Mustio in new premises

Karjaa library opened in a new location at the newly completed Karjaa Culture House Fokus on August 22. The library facilities spread on two floors and have an easy access with an entrance immediately to the left of the main door.

Mustio library opened again after three years’ break in the new school and daycare center in Askers at the same time as the school year, on August 16. The library entrance and the parking place are on the back side of the building.

Both Karjaa and Mustio libraries serve now also as self-service libraries.

You can now pay library fees also online

You can now pay your library fees also online! Log in to the online library helle.finna.fi, go to Your fines in the customer information and enter the payment service.

Three rules of thumb for online payments:
1. You have to have an e-mail address saved in the customer information for the online payment to go through.
2. Fines under 2 € can not be paid online.
3. All fines have to be paid at once.
