Book a Visit to the Library
The Turku University Library units will open in a limited capacity to students and staff of the university starting from Monday 19th April 2021. You can browse the collections, use the machines, and study areas by booking a library visit in advance via email. While in the library premises, you are expected to follow the university’s instructions on the corona virus situation, including wearing face masks and keeping at least 2 metre’s safe distance to others.
