Abstract: Knowledge and experiences associated with both IT and Management have permeated the education and the practices of librarians in recent years. However contributions from the Social Sciences and the Humanities have not been felt with the same acuity. This, in my opinion, has contributed to difficulties in understanding and in intervening with the users and with institutional bodies and, above all, has contributed to impoverish the debate surrounding the design of library policies. A particular focus is made on adolescent reading due to the weight of this age group in Portuguese public libraries and to their intensive use of the Internet. Bearing in mind the importance of a public service for reading, this paper is intended to be a contribution issued from a review of literature based on the Social Sciences and the Humanities, which I see as fruitful to construct what the new forms of reading are and what public libraries and their readers are and what they might be.
