Abstract: This thesis presents and evaluates a project, undertaken in 2001 by a librarian the writer of this thesis and a teacher. We met with a number of adults with reading and writing disabilities, and presented and discussed books and experiences of reading, with the aim to increase their joy of reading, as well as finding out more about our own ways of co-operating with each other across our professional borders. The documentation and evaluation emphasizes on the process and the results of the project, and on our own participation, by asking the following questions: How did we carry out the project? What obstacles did we meet? What went well/wrong? What did we achieve related to our goals? In order to illuminate the project from different angles, consequences of reading and writing disabilities for adults are discussed, as well as the specific nature of adult education and projects more or less related to ours. Action research is chosen as a method, because it allows the process of the project, and our own learning process, to be exposed. This suits the purpose of the thesis, as we want to present both advantages and disadvantages with our work, in order to learn from them. And as actions researchers we feel closely related to the participants of the project, as we are evaluated to the same degree. The formative evaluation can be followed in our diaries, with commentaries about what we learn, the difficulties we meet and how we change our plans. The summative evaluation with all our new knowledge is concluded after carrying through with the project. We managed to accomplish our goals to some extent. Some participants expressed a new joy of reading, some did not. Moreover, me and my colleague learnt a lot about cooperating. Teacher and librarian need each other to be able to reach certain individuals, and we have a lot to learn from each other in trying to find out particular needs, dreams and interests of a person, all of which is important when you want to find her a suitable book.
