Subject and Keywords:
In 1948 Polish communists initiated a socialist redevelopment of a village based on Soviet experience. The purpose of this process was to locate farmers in production cooperatives which were controlled by the country. This operation was also supported by librarians, who in the rural settlement of Czerwieńsk, Zielona Gora District, between 1949-1956 offered books which would encourage peasants to support the idea. ; They were, above all, popularisers of collective farming, as the choice of books on this topic was made by communist authorities. Confronted with the ideology of rural culture, only few regular members of the library in Czerwieńsk became gradually acquainted with Polish classic literature of Jozef Ignacy Kraszewski, Maria Konopnicka, Bolesław Prus and Stefan Żeromski. Soviet and national publications praising arguable achievements of group management were avoided.
