The Library

The Merikasarmi Library (earlier the Library of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs) now serves only as an internal library of the Government.

If you have borrowed books from the Merikasarmi Library and wish to extend the loan period, please contact us by email on You can renew your loans as necessary even though the Library is not open for external users.

In case you don't need the items you have borrowed any longer, you can return them to either of these addresses:

Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Laivastokatu 22 C, service point (end facing the main building)
Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, Meritullinkatu 8, 00170 Helsinki

You can also mail the borrowed items to the Government Library (Ministry of Social Affairs and Health), PO Box 33, 00023 Government

The change is part of the organisational reform, in which the different government ministries' library services were grouped together into one function under the Government Administration Department.
