The Bookstart project involves new working methods and forms of communication which may affect the professional identity of the participating librarians and the children's library services.

The thesis main conclusions are as follows: Bookstart has raised thoughts about the participating librarians’ professional identity, especially with a focus on working methods and the professional service to users.
