Styles of use and adoption: the example of children in Belsunce at the Alcazar Library

In the Belsunce neighbourhood, the Alcazar library is a place for children to carry out extra curricular activities by providing them with an informal aide with their homework, allowing for collective work, and in privileging a diffe-rent relationship with books. However, it is most often used as a social space between peer groups. Group logic influences the children in their reading ha-bits - collective - or their attraction for DVDs and pc stations. Their adoption of the library as a social space integral to their neighbourhood, is in effect a place for discussion together with multiple processes, even games. The introduction of these dissident practices is not without posing problems for the staff and other users.
