Maintenance work in Linna library this week

At Linna library´s other entrance there is maintenance work going on. The changes will make the entrance available also for disabled people.

Maintenance work related to air conditioning is also in progress on every floor of Linna library. The work will continue e.g. in group work rooms.

The maintenance work causes some noise. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Colours guide the use of Library’s working premises

May I speak or not? Library’s working premises are in huge demand, but talking and use of devices has brought us feedback especially after we opened the classrooms for the customers outside the courses. Now you can see colourful signs demonstrating whether you can discuss freely and use devices or not on the premises.

On the green premises you can tap on the laptop and talk. Group work rooms are green premises, so is Pohjantähti multipurpose space on Linna library’s 1st floor. Although the green sign allows mobile phone usage, in Linna library it is best to make the phone calls in the phone booths on the 2nd and 3rd floor.

On the yellow premises you can use laptop and speak in a low voice if necessary. Linna’s classroom Elina (3022)  and small multipurpose room Pentinkulma are yellow spaces, so it Arvo library’s classroom Mauri. In Pentinkulma you can do group work, so even in Elina, if you cannot find any other space, but remember to take the other students around into consideration.

The red sign means silent working space. In Linna’s Akseli and Alma classrooms you can concentrate on your own work at the computer.

The most silent premises in the Library are the Silent Reading Rooms in Linna and in Arvo library’s Learning Center. In Linna’s reading room there is even a separate reading space where the use of devices is not allowed.

Give us feedback: do the color signs guide the use of library spaces? You can also give feedback on library premises and other services in our User Survey until 9 April.
