Small children need large space. A study of the interior and its part in the creation of a user-friendly children’s library. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine how important a factor the environment and the interior is to the creation of a user-friendly children’s library. In this study, environment is taken to mean the furnishing and the equipment in the children’s area at the library. The environment plays an important role in society today and because of that this is a current topic. The case study was made at the public library in Halmstad, which is a newly built public library. We interviewed ten people who were connected to the children's division of the library; most of them employees. We wanted to know what they thought was a user-friendly environment for children at the library. We also wanted to know how they used the furnishing, colour, sound and light to establish a user-friendly environment. This study consists of both qualitative interviews and documents, mostly from the planning stage of the library. We subjected the interview material to different analyses which were based upon theories mainly from our own field, library and information science, but also from environmental psychology. We found out that the environment plays an important role at the children's division of the library. The flexibility of the environment was an important factor in optimizing the potential uses for the children's division, which created many possibilities for the successful execution of an extensive activity program. We concluded that it is important to be able to use the environment for many different purposes.
