GONZALEZ DE LA TORRE, Yolanda. Story Time in the public library. An analysis of reading practices. Sinéctica [online]. 2021, n.56, e1173.  Epub 06-Mayo-2021. ISSN 2007-7033.

This work analyzes visible reading practices, which were identified in a public library in Guadalajara, Mexico. Based on a sociocultural perspective of reading as social practice, we focused on the particular conditions and demands that the reader faces in a given space and leads him to develop reading activity in some specific way. The activity named “Story Time”, carried out in the library addressed to the children’s who are regular visitors, was chosen to develop our inquiry. Two methods of qualitative social research were used: Observation and interviews with the librarians in order to identify reading practices as well as their perceptions of the promotion of reading and readers’ training. Concluding remarks show that the emphasis of this activity was placed on the dissemination of the library collection, along with promoting the reader’s abilities the most appreciated in the school culture, such as reading fluency, through exercises such as reading aloud.
