FAHA is a place, a philosophy, and a state of mind.
The organization founded an extensive facility in the Valley of the Moon--the fabled Northern california area surrounding Sonoma, about one hour from San Francisco. Our impeccable facilities include two living residences for seniors, a generously sized swimming pool, two authentic Finnish saunas, guest units, indoor meeting facilities, a reception hall, a commercial kitchen, and a well stocked library.
The Library/Kirjasto is the repository of Finnish literature, history and heritage--a place to learn about our roots and share them with younger generations. Art and artifacts of Finnish culture and design are displayed in the library. FAHA's Library Committee works together with FAHA's Cultural Committee arranging public exhibits and events to share the diverse Finnish contributions to world culture, from the Finnish designs to cooking classes of the legendary coffee bread of Finland, pulla.
FAHA Library Committee acquires new Finnish literature, fiction and non-fiction, both in Finnish and English. Year around access to library is provided by FAHA's library volunteers. FAHA Library is open every Saturday 1-3 pm year around and every Saturday and Sunday 1-3 pm during the summer. Click Here to access a collection of library books online.
