From bookboxes to Internet detective agency : measures to encourage reading among children and youth in sparsely populated regions in the county of Jämtland during 1997-1999 (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this master thesis is to examine how librarians/cultural workers act in projects in order to stimulate and promote reading among children and youth in sparsely populated regions in the county of Jämtland during a period of three years, and if/how these projects differ. The examination is based upon the progress of these projects in four of eight communities. Four librarians and two cultural workers have been interviewed in order to get their view of the proceedings of the projects. The results indicate that the four communities all made up plans for three years but in different ways. They mainly collaborated with the school but also with the board of children's health and the preparatory school. Some of the projects were initiated by the county library, directing to all or to some of the communities. One community addressed one of their projects to the Sami school. The second community's projects especially presumed participation and activity from the teachers and pupils to succeed. The third community used their book mobile for the project "Bok and Film", and the fourth community based one big project, "Åre Agentbyrå", upon the use of the Internet. In the master thesis I came to the conclusion that book mobiles and the Internet are effective tools to reduce difficulties with the long distances in the region. In my investigation there are mainly two communities that reduce long distance between people and libraries in these ways.
