Oswald Kaipainen: Time for innovation


I’m Oswald Kaipainen from Espoo City Library. I work as a librarian in the children’s department of the second largest library of Espoo called the Apple Library. The Apple Library is most likely moving to brand new larger premises in 2016. The new library will break many traditional library concepts as it will share the same space with other municipal and state services such as health center, dental care center, maternity clinic, Common Service Center, Social Insurance Institution and possibly youth services. Some political decisions are still pending, but the project seems almost certain to progress.

Our greatest challenges include forming solid and innovative cooperation between the different service providers and building the best possible services for our existing and new patron groups. We have gathered a team to defeat the upcoming challenges and I hope to learn and bring something to the table from the great library minds riding with me in the Cycling for Libraries 2013.
See you soon!
Oswald Kaipainen
