The library of your dreams

The Lappeenranta Main Library is about to go under renovation in 2022–2023, and is now being planned. The renewed main library wants a more functional and modern library that meets the needs of its customers.

The library is the most used cultural service in Lappeenranta, so ideas and wishes for planning are sought from city residents and library users. The Lappeenranta City Library has launched an online survey, which allows anyone to submit their own ideas and wishes about what the renewed main library should be. The online survey is open until February 7th.
