My tiny contribution to OKFestival is to arrange a small tour of the new Helsinki University City Centre Campus Library (Kaisa House, Main Library). The library just opened (September 2012).

The tour is on Monday September 17 in the morning (before the main conference starts). Please contact me via email or Twitter if you'd like to join.
Here's a video of the library under construction

There's information in English on page 6 of this PDF http://www.helsinki.fi/kirjastot/kaisa_taloesite.pdf and from the International Staff Exchange Week 2012 section of the Helsinki University website there's a presentation explaining some of the background of the building http://www.helsinki.fi/international/ISEW2012_presentation_Nicola_Nykopp.pdf
