Hi Tamas,

writing a Haskell library is very good idea yet requires some 
confidence. So for your first somehow useful programs, you could want to
try olympiad / competition problems in Haskell. Of course, most are not
specifically oriented towards Haskell as programming language and the
harder ones are about tricky algorithms. But they are the kind of small
yet intelligent task you are looking for. Not all have solutions but
usually, google will reveal quite a few.

The ultimate Haskell challenge is of course the ICFP contest
There is also the International ACM Programming Contest
Your country surely has some kind of high school computing science 
competition to get problems from.
