Interest in online resources for leisure and relaxation has seen a huge increase over the past two years. As more people are affected by rising costs and financial insecurity, public libraries are becoming an essential source of entertainment and information.
Helsinki City’s Helmet Library system subscribed to Medici.tv in August and have seen strong
usage of the service. Tuija Kalke, Information Specialist, Helsinki City Library said: ‘Medici is a superior music video streaming service, a treasure trove of classical music with an enticing interface and top quality sound, vision and content. It is beautiful.’
