I live and work at around southern Finland, joining for the 4th Cycling for Libraries campaign
I am a Librarian in the public library of Sipoo, doing things with collections and booking comics exhibitions among other things. This is the library where I work:

Why do I think libraries are important?
Public libraries are in a leading role for not letting people to be left behind on this information age by giving access and consultation to information, but also by providing work spaces and meeting places. Nevertheless libraries always contribute on reading, which is fundamental especially now as we face the demands of disinformation and rapid development of cultural evolution.
My challenge or focus
On redefining the role of the libraries I am especially interested on the concrete question of library systems and management of such information system conversions, as we just recently updated our system into an open source system Koha in Sipoo along with a new group of libraries, named as Helle libraries, during the spring and the year 2017.
