What can I do at Oodi?
Oodi is what you want it to be. Meet friends, search for information, immerse yourself in a book or work. Create something new in Oodi’s studios or the Urban Workshop. Oodi’s services and facilities are available to you seven days a week, from early in the morning till late in the evening.
Oodi is a striking building with its glass and steel structures and wooden facade, its design a combination of traditional and contemporary flavours. The energy-efficient library is an impressive calling card for Finnish architecture.
