The stylish library building was completed in 1985 next to Taulumäki market on the edge of Koivikkopuisto park and was designed by Hyvämäki-Karhunen-Parkkunen. The interior designer was Anita Karhunen. There are rooms in the library for a variety of uses, such as an auditorium for educational and special events, and a showroom for changing exhibits.
There are a variety of events held in the library of Varkaus, which include the annual Vekara-Varkaus Childrens Summer Festival during the second week of June, and the Tarinoiden Taulumäki city festival on Father’s Day weekend in November.
