Kalanti library is a local library that partially functions as a self-service library. During self-service hours, the library space, user computers and library collections may be accessed by users, even if there is no personnel present at the facilities.

During the self-service hours, users can enter the library with their personal Vaski library card and PIN code.

  • Your identification number is the same as the one you use when renewing loans or borrowing material online.
  • You can get your identification number from the library (bring your library card and an ID with a photo with you)
  • Minors' identification numbers may be obtained by a guardian
