My subordinated questions are:

* How does the school librarian receive information on whether the reading promotion has any effect on the pupils?

* How does the work at the school libraries match with the framework and current research?

I have used qualitative methods. I have conducted observations at five school libraries and interviewed four school librarians.
Through my observations and interviews I have reached the conclusion that certain factors are particularly important when it comes to encouraging pupils to read. These factors are cooperation, time, book collection and availability. I have also noted that the librarians I interviewed work with reading promotion in different ways but all are convinced that it is possible to inspire an interest in reading among the pupils, at least if the condition (Less)
