”You have to like teenagers” : Librarians’ views on youth and youth programs in the public library (English)
Abstract [en]

In the paper we bring up and analyse the attitudes librarians have towards youth and youth programs in the public library. The purpose is to raise awareness among librarians and to make the process of change and development. We have used semi structured interviews in order to answer our research questions and conducted the interviews with five librarians in charge of the youth programs in different public libraries. In these interviews we asked about their views on youth as a user group, youth programs and how this affects their opinions on the roles of the public library. We have also tried to see how the librarian’s opinions differ from how the library runs their youth programs today. We have used two different models as theoretic framework. One of them has defined three different roles of the public librarian and is constructed by Maj Klasson and the other is a developed version of Andersson & Skot-Hansen’s classic model of the roles of the public library made by Jochumsen, Rasmussen & Skot-Hansen. These models have been used to structure the analysis of the material gathered from the interviews. The informants in this paper show a positive attitude towards youth as a group and express a wish to make their experiences with the public library as good as possible. Overall they are satisfied with the way the youth programs in their libraries work today but would like to develop it further given more time and resources.
