ABSTRACT

This study’s purpose is to suggest ways to improve and revitalize public libraries’ operations to reflect the Yangpyeong-gun community’s characteristics. To this end, the Yangpyeong-gun region’s characteristics and the current state of public library operation were analyzed, and a survey was conducted targeting Yangpyeong-gun residents (library users and nonusers). Additionally, interviews were conducted to investigate the library’s operating status and limitations and librarians’ perceptions of library revitalization plans. As a result of the analysis, in Yangpyeong-gun, improvement points such as library operation improvement and library accessibility improvement reflecting local community changes such as urban development, population change, manpower and collections expansion, complex cultural space strengthening, reading culture programs, and user services were derived.
