Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine adolescents relationships and expectations toward activities in the public library in a Swedish town. Earlier research has shown that it’s a problem in many public libraries that adolescents don't show up or use the library. Since we have met a number of librarians that mention this problem with adolescent’s not showing up for their activities, we wanted to get the adolescents own points of view as well.To study this area we asked students from several colleges to fill out a survey. In this survey we had questions about if they for one know about what kind of activities the public library has to offer, if they’re interested in them and if not, why aren’t they? We also asked them questions about where they got the information about the activities and where they most wanted to receive it.Our study shows that a great number of our target group didn't know about the activities the public library organized. If they knew but weren’t interested, a common reason was because they don’t like to read. Many of them also said that they would like to receive the information about the activities on Facebook or on other social media. What they didn’t seem to be aware about was that the public library in our town actually has a Facebook page. This implies that the library has a marketing problem, since they don’t manage to reach out to this age group.
