Finland is celebrating the country's birthday with the opening of a new state of the art library in Helsinki.

The new public space has more than just books, featuring 3D printers, recording studios, cinemas and other leisure facilities that are all free for the public to use.

Called Oodi, the large glass structure offers some of the best views over the city.

It will be the centrepiece of a new public square which is still under construction.

The designers wanted to create a multi-purpose space in the heart of the city, like a neighbourhood centre, where people can just hang out and spend time doing something constructive.
