Library Opening Hours Developed Based on Feedback – Most Libraries Open at 8 am


The opening hours and customer service hours of the Turku Campus libraries, apart from the Feeniks Library, will change starting from the 3rd of April. The libraries will open at 8 am and have self-service hours until noon.  

“We have received requests to open libraries at 8 am, so that the library can be reached before the lectures begin. We aim to target the guidance and customer service provided by the library staff at the time when there is the greatest need,” says Antti Peltonen, Head of Library Services.
