The building itself is a combination of old and new, like many people here have pointed out. The collection of books is great and quite big, and the staff is helpful. There are also computers you can use for free and I think there's a free wifi for your own device as well, I'm not completely sure. There's also a cafe (which I haven't tried yet myself). A great place to read international magazines and books in various languages and see some Finnish culture. There's also the music section upstairs where you can borrow cds and stuff. The atmosphere is peaceful.

Turku City library is situated in the centre of the town and the new section was built only in 2007. Citizens can now enjoy large and modern facilities for reading their daily newspapers, listening to music, accessing the internet or lending their books. You can easily spend hours here. Food and snacks available from the cafe'

Huge and comfortable, you can find any book you're looking for, even in english, or just read some comics, watch a film, etc. It's an excellent public library.
