Abstract [en]

The purpose of this master’s thesis is to investigate the culture for children in the age of 10-12 year-old at the library in a small town and to see if the library and children shared the same view of the libraries missions. We have interviewed 3 groups of 5-7 children at two times. We have also interviewed a children librarian about her opinion of her work and children culture. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child works as our theory in this thesis. We thought that the convention could have an impact on the work of the children libraries. The issues studied are: · How does the children experience the culture offered by the library? · Which culture for children exists in the library? What do the children use? · What do the children think about the mission of the library and of the library as an intermediary link to culture? · What does the library think about their mission and of the library as an intermediary link between children and culture? · How does the work of the library accord to the Convention on the Rights of the Child? The study shows that the children associate the library with the school. This is something that the librarian knew and wanted to change. We also saw that the children wanted to take part in the library work such as purchase, activities and selections. The library does work with the convention as a guideline but wanted to increase the influence of the convention partly by making the children participate more.
