A Dynamic Duo on the doorstep of the Capital.

"When we started updating our image at SKS we chose Gary Wornell and his assistant Tarja Petrell as partners. We had a vision of a variety of people using our resourses and services and a strong will to intermediate everything positive and intuitive associated with our unique archives and beautiful facilities. Welcome to us! was our unspoken motto during the process. Gary and Tarja made our vision come alive. We believe our choice was successful and our co-operation continues." - Sirkka-Liisa Mettomäki, Communications Director at SKS, Finnish Literature Society
