Book donations for member communitites overseas

Finland Society supports its overseas member communities by donating them Finnish literature. Finland society donates 7-20 books depending of the size of the community.

NOTE! If you want to pick up books from our office, please arrange a pick-up time in advance. We mail books several times a year and always inform the customer when the package has left our office. We are adding to our bookshelf and you can order books for 2023 from the beginning of February. For more information: maarit.hyvarinen@suomi-seura.fi

In order to receive book donations, your community must have paid the membership fee. The community applying for a book donation must have a library space which is open to members at specific times.

The amount of the book donations depends on the number of members. In the case of Finnish schools, the number of pupils is taken as the number of members. The number of books is as follows: 1-19 members/7 books, 20-99 members/15 books, 100 members/20 books.
