Abstract
The aim of the paper is to examine how public libraries can develop their services for children with ethnic minority backgrounds as a user group. This is achieved through studying the conditions for library services provided for children aged 9-12 in this group by public libraries in suburbs densely populated with ethnic minorities. The paper uses both a literature review and empirical research on the community libraries in Rinkeby and Rosengård as well as the town library in Lund. Services potentially available to these groups are analysed and discussed in the later chapters. The overall conclusion is that those services provided for ethnic minority children are largely the same as those provided for in children library services in... (More)
The aim of the paper is to examine how public libraries can develop their services for children with ethnic minority backgrounds as a user group.

The paper uses both a literature review and empirical research on the community libraries in Rinkeby and Rosengård as well as the town library in Lund. Services potentially available to these groups are analysed and discussed in the later chapters. The overall conclusion is that those services provided for ethnic minority children are largely the same as those provided for in children library services in general. However, there are differences in that some services provided for ethnic minority children differ in content whereas others differ in significance. Furthermore, there are extra services available for these children. The conclusion manifests a description of the most central library services provided for ethnic minority children, namely: service-specific media selection, language teaching with the use of concrete methods, provision of a free activity area, homework assistance and Internet access.
