Culture events in Swedish public libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis examines art exhibitions, literature events and music events in public libraries in Sweden. The aim is to study which event occurs most in the libraries in Sweden. I also examine who takes responsibility for the events, who the libraries engage, how much the events cost, and how often the libraries have the events. I also study Swedish cultural politics in purpose to see if the libraries follow the aims and directions decided by the Swedish government. One aim of the Swedish culture politic is to give every citizen in Sweden the same possibility to experience culture, no matter where they live. The Swedish government also wants everyone to take part in culture and that the Swedish people should be able to experience different type of culture. The public libraries are seen as institutions of culture, and several studies have shown that the libraries are the most visited institutions of cultural in Sweden. I examine 151 Swedish public libraries. The result of the studies shows that literature events are the most frequent, followed by art exhibitions. The library doesnt have to pay so much for the events and it is not unusually that other organizations in society take responsibility for events in the libraries. The result also shows that there is a difference between libraries in the country when it comes to offer people culture event. Most of the libraries have one or more of the tree different event, which shows that they are centre of culture. Many of the follow the aims and directions of the Swedish culture politic.
