Helsinki gets a one of a kind Moomin library bus

There is a new bus in town by the name of Skidi and it comes loaded with Moomin. The purpose of the mobile library is to service all areas in Helsinki which currently don’t have access to a public library. This way children of all ages get to experience the joy of reading.

The Helsinki City library wanted to honor the Tove Jansson centenary by featuring Moomin illustrations on their library bus. The bus also features lots of books by Tove Jansson as well as other books for children and adults. Moomin Characters’ creative director Sophia Jansson is very pleased with the result:

– The illustrations on the library bus turned out really nice and I’m happy that the bus is in service in time for Tove’s anniversary says Sophia Jansson.
