Abstract [en]

In 1911 Valfrid Palmgren founded the Children's Library of Stockholm, the very first in Sweden. She was a well-educated woman, who believed in social and educational equality for all. During a journey to the USA in 1907, she was deeply impressed by the public libraries, and she put many of the public library ideas to use in the Children's Library of Stockholm. Palmgren strongly opposed to the Swedish libraries not allowing admission to children, since she firmly believed that educating the people had to start with the children. Other reasons for opening a children's library were to give children an alternative to roaming the streets, to give children a quiet place to read, to give an alternative to the cheap trash literature that flooded the market and to teach the young ones how to extract information from books. Of great importance was that the library should be equal to all classes in society. In 1927 the children's library was taken over by the new public library of Stockholm.
