There have been restrictions on the self-service hours in the Mukkula Library from December 16, 2022. Because of the restrictions, the self-service hours have not been available on weekends. Now, even tighter restrictions are necessary.
From January 18, the Mukkula Library self-service hours are not available in the evenings. The self-service hours are only available in the mornings before the normal service begins and on weekends until 15:00. On weekdays the library closes after normal service hours: on Mondays and Tuesdays at 19:00, on Wednesdays at 16:00, on Thursdays and Fridays at 15:00. The self-service hours begin every day at 6:00.
The decision to restrict the self-service hours is due to customers behaving in an inappropriate manner, breaking library rules. There has been continual vandalism in the library, facilities have been damaged and big bunches of people have crowded the library spaces. This kind of behaviour may pose a threat to other customers and to the library building. In this situation, it is necessary to tighten the restrictions. The restrictions will be in force until March 5.
