Abstract: The purpose of this study was to find out what different groups of visitors do when they are at Borås City Library. Three issues were formulated from the purpose and they were: What do users do when they visit the City Library in Borås? What occupations do those who visit the library have? What similarities and differences are there in the use of the library depending on the visitors’ occupations? To answer these questions a questionnaire was handed out among the visitors at Borås City Library. The theory that was used when the material was analyzed comes from the book”Gør biblioteket en forskel?” and the book is written by Henrik Jochumsen and Casper Hveneegaard Rasmussen. The results are presented by six diagrams and each diagram represent one question. The result shows that it is common to use the library to borrow or return materials and the second most common activity is to read at the library. Books dominate among the borrowed or returned items. The result also showed that several of the respondents read books, magazines and newspapers at the library. The computers are mainly used to search for information. Among the respondents approximately one third had participated in some activity that the library offered.
