The Kirkkonummi Library project is Moving Forward

The Kirkkonummi Library project is moving forward as the cornerstone of the building is laid today. The cornerstone ceremonies take place on the building site in Kirkkonummi, and  begin with an opening speech from the town chief executive Tarmo Aarnio.

The history of Kirkkonummi Library dates back to 1856, when the local officers made decicion to improve the literacy in the parish. The current library building, designed by professor Ola Hans, was completed 1982. Since then the library has operated at the heart of Kirkkonummi, next to St. Michaels Church and the church market square.

The library building will be transformed into a meeting place for Kirkkonummi’s residents. In addition to a thorough renovation, the building will be expanded to meet the needs of a modern library. When finished, it will be twice its current size.

The work planned to be completed during summer 2019.
