Summary/Abstract: The article presents the information obtained by interviewing six library specialists in correlation to a current research among primary school teachers. It represents an attempt to specify and measure some aspects of the communication and cooperation processes between representatives of the official educational system and of the libraries which are also knowledge providing organizations. The intersection points reveal the specific professional influences and relations, which impact the formation process of the young readers and the child character as a whole. The text represents just a part of the received data and some of the current tendencies. Initial conclusions: primary school teachers do not recognize library activities as a possible continuation of the educational process and young readers development; financial problems and lack of cooperation between librarians and teachers result in providing pupils with syllabus literature in most cases, thus belittling the library role and reducing its functions to just a provision of texts.
