The role of libraries in reading promotion consists of much more than simply providing texts and media. Considerations as to how to reach children and teenagers lacking in parental reading sozialisation are an important issue in this context. Presently, schools and nursery schools alone are unable to get these children interested in using libraries steadily. Intense cooperations aim at making libraries more visible for children in pre-school institutions and schools. Thus, libraries find themselves to be at the interface between daily routines in institutions and in personal life. They can have a stabilizing function for the educational biographies of adolescents if their responsibility can be embedded in the awareness of both libraries and the public as a common good. To this end mutual knowledge of the possibilities and the needs of the respective institutions needs to be enhanced. The comparison with Finland shows that the increase of library use still requires people who give advice in libraries, and who give assistance to the readers.
