    Is it a live advertisement?

    "Aaron went to the counter and confirmed his Internet booking. The tall blonde advertisement for Sweden led him to the workstation and logged him on."
    (Aaron's in a library.)

    Does the library use a real person to do advertisement for apparently something to do with Sweden?

    (Not a teacher)

    'advertisement for Sweden' here is an adjective, describing the woman. It refers to the fact that she looks like a stereotypical Swedish female. If an advertisement were ever to be made about Swedish stereotypes, a female such as her would be 'appropriate'. It is not to be taken seriously, of course.
