Childrens librarians view of the work with small children A qualitative study (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim with this thesis, based on five childrens librarians statements, is to highlight their view of their work, and what they deem to be of importance when working with small children within the library sphere. My main question is as follows: What motive compels childrens librarians in their work with small children, and will Vygotskys theories be recognised in their statements. I have two questions as a base for this main question: How do childrens librarians work with small children, and do they utilise any special methods in their work? How do childrens librarians view their work tasks, and what do they deem to be of importance regarding small children and libraries? The thesis is based on qualitative interviews. As a theory I have decided to concentrate on Vygotskys thoughts on imagination and creativity, the Zone of Proximal Development, and childrens language development. I have analysed the result of the interviews from Vygotskys theories and also other literature. The duties of childrens librarians are very similar. The most important motive in their duties as childrens librarians is to stimulate language. It is also of the utmost importance to stimulate childrens imagination. Both Vygotsky and the childrens librarians say that this is required so that we as human beings can develop. Collaboration with an intermediary is often the case. This can be a parent or personnel from pre-school or child clinic. Through this collaboration it is possible to make contact with children, and as time elapses contribute that the children develop from their own requirements in tune with what Vygotsky calls the Zone of Proximal Development. Vygotskys theories can legitimise a lot of the work done by childrens librarians.
