Immigrants, cultural meeting and the public library (English)
Abstract [en]

The main aim of this paper is to illurninate how a group of immigrants meet the public library in Sweden. I have chosen to discuss Iranian immigrants' meeting with the public library in Borås. The investigation (qualitative interviews and inquiries) has taken place in the public library of Borås and partly in a local library with high density of immigrants. A theoretical perspective deals with the case study of dual marginality, where the conception of the "Marginal Man" or "The Outsider" is central. I have indicated how the previous authors have considered this problem, to live on the verge between two different cultures and how individuals react on it. The interviews and inquiries answered by Iranian immigrants are the most important material in this investigation and the result of them is connected to the theoretical perspective and a discussion, what it means for the public library.
