Book talk for adults at public libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to study library book talks for adults. Through semi-structured interviews with three librarians at public libraries in Sweden we investigate how librarians perceive book talks as a method of reading promotion for adult library users as well as their views on the resources they consider necessary for promoting reading and literature. The results of the study have been analyzed using a form of qualitative content analysis, together with a modified version of Aidan Chamber’s model of the Reading Circle (2011). The results show that the librarians in the study find that book talks for adults are time consuming and that they struggle to attract more mixed audiences than the usual homogenous group of participants. The librarians required more specified time at work for reading literature in order to prepare for book talks, as well as for developing strategies for reaching out to new groups of potential book talk participants.
