Läsa för livet (prop. 2013/14:3)
Abstract: The aim of this Master´s thesis is to examine how public library managers reflect on readers´ advisory and promotion of adult literature, and how they view and discuss the governmental proposition Läsa för livet (prop. 2013/14:3). Questions posed in this study are: What matters do public library managers think fiction have on adults? How do public library managers reflect on promotion of adult literature? What are public library managers´ views on the governmental proposition Läsa för livet and how it will affect the public library? The theoretical starting-points used in this study are views on literature by Magnus Persson and Gitte Balling, and views on literature promotion by Rasmus Grøn. Method chosen was semi-structured interviews with six library managers in public libraries. This empirical material was analyzed according to the questions above. The results show strong emphasis on patron acquisition in collection management and literary promotion, according to the respondents in this study. It also shows their lack of high expectations of the governmental proposition Läsa för livet.
