Abstract

This paper explores the place of the rural library in the context of reading habits of teens. Using Derek Seamon’s concept of the place ballet, four themes are discussed: daily reading practices, the visibility of the library, the Internet as a reading site and the temporal constraints on leisure reading.

Cet article explore la place des bibliothèques en milieu rural dans le contexte des habitudes de lecture des adolescents. À partir du concept de ballet collectif (place ballet) de Derek Seamon, quatre thèmes seront discutés : des exercices quotidiens de lecture, la visibilité de la bibliothèque, Internet comme site de lecture et les contraintes temporelles sur la lecture comme passe-temps.
