Are series books for children and youth available at the library? (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this masters thesis is to examine to what extent series books for children and youth are included in the acquisitions of public libraries. It also examines which needs series books fulfil among a group of 13-15 year old children. The main question of this thesis was: To what extent do libraries provide series books for children and youth? An inquiry investigation showed that a majority of the libraries in Sweden provide these books. The main reason to provide the books was that the demand is large. Many librarians think the books can function as an entry into the world of reading and that they also can be good for reading and language training. The most frequent arguments for not providing series books were that the quality is poor and economical reasons. Another reason was that it could be troublesome and also expensive to keep series books with many sequels complete. The thesis also includes interviews with 13-15 year old children. The main reason for reading series books mentioned by them was that they found the books thrilling and sometimes funny. They also thought an advantage with series books is that if you find one book good you can continue with other sequels in the same series.
