Abstract
The technical evolution has a great influence on the public libraries. Electronic media becomes more and more common. This Master´s thesis is based upon the Swedish Library law 9§ (SFS 1996:1596) which says: Public- and school libraries should pay special attention to children and teenagers by offering books, information technology and other media, adapted to their needs, to encourage development of language and stimulate reading. From this point of view we have examined why the children´s departments in public libraries offer CD-ROM games which are based upon characters from the literature, how they are used in the daily activity and how they can contribute to the development of the children´s department.

From this point of view we have examined why the children´s departments in public libraries offer CD-ROM games which are based upon characters from the literature, how they are used in the daily activity and how they can contribute to the development of the children´s department.

We have made literary studies and empirical investigations including interviews, observation studies etc. The results from this studies shows that both young and adults appreciate the CD-ROM games. It also shows that there are some issues that are important to have in mind to achieve a functional and integrated CD-ROM game activity. We have identified the following important issues:

- Object definition and evaluation.

- Target group and the distinctive character of the media.

- The physical environment.

- The technical equipment.

- The competence among the staff.

Taking these issues in consideration there is a great potential for the public libraries children´s departments to have a well functional and fruitful CD-ROM game activity. (Less)
