The Finnish Institute for Children’s Literature advances the position of children’s and youth literature in Finland with expertise, courage and an open mind. Our special library and collection of original illustrations cater to a wide audience. We cooperate with specialist networks, media and educational institutions nationally and internationally. We organize events, seminars and exhibitions and house the children’s literature journal Onnimanni, which discusses news, phenomena and practitioners in the field and introduces recent children’s and youth literature.
