Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on the policy making-process of library plans in six Swedish municipalities. The study is based on interviews with people involved in the making of these plans, and concentrates on which actors get to be involved in the making, with specific focus on the relations between library staff, schools and local politicians. The findings show that school staff, or people otherwise in charge of school library activity, rarely are sufficiently involved, and that the plans are regarded as primarily concerned with the public library workings. It is also established that library staff has less contact with the politicians in small municipalities, or in municipalities without a culture committee. The analysis suggests that the library plans may function as boundary objects for the municipalities public libraries and their staff, but not regarding the bridging of different occupational groups perceptions, such as between libraries, politicians, schools and the public.
