Like other public spaces in multicultural Sweden, public libraries have now become places where criminal and undesirable behavior like sexual harassment, drug dealing, and violence have become commonplace

A survey carried out by DIK (Trade Union for Culture, Communication, and Advertising) of over 4,700 librarians around the country has revealed some alarming trends.

According to the Swedish broadcaster SVT, “It is the third survey in a row that points to the same thing: Development is going in the wrong direction.

The most pressing problem according to the survey’s respondents is social unrest – defined as intoxication, fighting, and aggressiveness toward staff or visitors. The survey revealed that social unrest has increased from 73 percent in 2017 to 81 percent of Swedish libraries today.

55 percent of public library staff and 42 percent of responding school librarians reported that they had witnessed violent situations in the previous two years, an increase of 13 and 18 percentage points, respectively, compared to 2017.

While 18 percent of survey respondent said that violence occurs every week, four percent reported that violence takes place on a daily basis.

”Many want special treatment – free of charge, write off debt, borrow for as long as possible – and become aggressive when they do not get what they want,” said one of the surveyed librarians.

Stina Hamberg, DIK’s head of social policy, told reporters: “It can be less threatening situations like throwing a book at someone, but in the worst cases, it is physical violence against librarians or visitors – in fact, abuse.”

“Nobody should have to face these kinds of situations in their workplace,” Hamberg continued, adding, “Librarians are not trained for this, they work with reading promotion and information retrieval. Not dealing with drunk people, mentally ill or socially vulnerable people.”

Shockingly, close to half (47%) of those who were surveyed reported that drug dealing had occurred in their libraries over the past two years.

And, if that’s not disturbing enough, librarians also reported that it’s common to encounter men viewing porn or openly masturbating in front of computers.

While one in six librarians reported having been the subject of sexual harassment, one in five said that they’ve considered quitting or switching careers in the past two years.

  1. It is freaking Muslims.They come to destroy. I say that, with people plugging their ears. People will suffer the consequences.

  2. The intoxication is from stress hormone toxins of halal meat or khet/khat drug which is halal/accepted in `SS` islamist ummah and sharia brutality No Go Zones (areas). Islamists are allowed to sell fentanyl,heroin and all other street drugs to infidels and dhimmi/servants.

  3. The world is becoming a brutal place.
    We are against everything that is good. Our primitive self will be with us for another million years or so.
    So brace yourself for a long haul of stupidity, especially in political spectrum.

  4. I use the library almost daily and find it more disruptive than it once was. People laugh out loud at something they think is verrrry funny on the computer while others talk in normal voice to their friend next to them instead of in hushed tones as it used to be. Cell phones ring, often several times while women dig in their purses for them, despite signs saying to keep them on vibrate. Printers clatter, vending machines drop pop and snacks, candy wrappers and chip bags rustle. I haven’t seen any violence yet but wouldn’t be surprised if I did. I was taught from a little boy how to conduct myself at the library. Evidently it is a lost discipline.

  5. Cultural mixing is a farce and ruins otherwise and formerly homogenous states. It is a BIG mistake to pretend it’s OK. It isn’t. Total borders integrity and cultural planning/mixing is key to allowing developed societies to last longer. Premier example: the good old USA. We’ve gone too far. Our cultural/racial mish/mash has destroyed our meritocracy and who we have been. KowTowing to ignorant minorities has developed into a cancer within that very well might be incurable, then everyone loses. We have made huge mistakes and correcting them might be impossible. We used to be smarter. No more.We’ll limp forward but we are on the downward slope. Rome did better, lasted longer. Sad.

  6. This invasion from s. of the border is a pet idea of George Soros and the United Nations.. The USA already naturalizes more legal immigrants than any other country in the world. The largest number of legal immigrants about 80% are from Mexico. Now because Congress is too busy attempting to remove the president instead of the illegal criminal aliens–we are being over run to the point that 46 states now have a larger number of illegal aliens than true U.S. citizens. This is not good for America, not the workers who are citizens, not good because of the sanctuary cities that protect the criminal aliens not the U.S.Treasury which is supporting almost 100% of the illegal aliens who are not equipped to work in a far more advanced work place.. Congress has gone Criminal rogue in it’s attempts to overthrow the President of the USA. This must stop or we shall lose our Republic and our constitution forever.
