The mini-tour took place from 30th to 31th of May in 2011 from Seinäjoki to Vaasa. The aim was to to emphasize the role of libraries in society.

From the original info: The aim of the campaign is to encourage librarians and municipal authorities as well as ordinary library users to find how important libraries are to the community. Cyclists will visit libraries located along the route and speak out some thesis for libraries like:
