Estonia Sports Equipment Lending Library

The Tallinn Central Library offers a wide range of services - from traditional library services to different user training courses and lending home sports equipment - for the inhabitants and visitors of Tallinn. However, polls we have conducted and discussions we have had with our library’s users and potential users show that people are not aware of these services. Many people see the public library just as a place to borrow books… which is not good because the library’s image affects legislation, decisions of policy-makers, library budgets, different support programmes where library can apply for funding, etc. If people do not see public libraries as a place that caters to the needs of the community and society, then soon there might not be libraries anymore. link
