Abstract: The aim of this master thesis was to find out about librarians opinions of childrens libraries on the Internet, if it is a resource to reach children. Qualitative interviews were conducted with three librarians who had participated in the construction and development of childrens libraries on the Internet. IT and the Internet play an important role in childrens lives and children are using it to a greater extent. Libraries have begun to integrate IT and Internet into their services and are offering service on the Internet. The public library websites are usually for grown-ups and very few are directed to children. In Europe and Sweden attempts have been made to create childrens libraries. The result of this study shows that according to the librarians interviewed a childrens library is a resource to reach children and the library on the Internet is complementary to the traditional library. My conclusion is that libraries need to integrate IT and Internet into their services to survive in the future and one way to meet the users and their needs is to offer service of the library on the Internet.
