Mediamaja (Media Lounge) is designed as a venue for youths, young adults and immigrants in Kouvola, where courses, workshops, exhibitions, concerts and gaming events are arranged in cooperation with local educational institutions. The professional staff and modern facilities offer a wide variety of activities.

Mediamaja's strengths are media education, creative writing, music lessons and making videos and animation films. Mediamaja's activities are not confined to library premises but can also be arranged in schools, colleges and at a variety of cultural events.

Here are only some of the things you can do in Mediamaja:

  • film and edit your own videos - we provide the hardware and the software
  • record and edit audio - record and mix your own demo
  • play and relax - game consoles ranging from 8bit Nintendo to PS3 and X360
  • learn to use software or devices - our staff helps with tablets, laptops, and smartphones

Mediamaja is located downstairs of the Kouvola main library, next to Cafe Pinocchio. Our opening hours are 12-18 Mon-Thu and 10-16 on Fri.
