Edinburgh Libraries and Iisalmi Library in Finland became sister libraries early in 2019, and enjoy the opportunity to share and discuss experiences and cooperate by organising joint activities.
Iisalmi is a vibrant middle-sized city in the Upper Savonia in the northeast of the country surrounded by lakes, rivers, and woodland. It has about 22,000 inhabitants and is known for the Olvi brewery and Genelec speaker factory among others. The library is located in the Iisalmi Cultural Centre, which also contains the Iisalmi Community College, Music College, Nature Museum and two main halls for different cultural events.

This partnership is the latest of many library collaborations under the NAPLE Sister Libraries cooperation programme for public libraries.
