ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research is to analyze the characteristics and problems of ‘Reading Cheongju’ which launched as ‘One Book, One City’ reading promotion campaign in 2006 and conducted 23 times for the past 15 years. The analysis of the selection criteria of ‘one book’, 31 selected books, and the activity of reading and discussion shows the strength of continuity and stability of ‘Reading Cheongju’. However, the following weaknesses need to be improved on: the inadequate change in book selection criteria, selection of several books according to age groups instead of ‘One Book’, lack of consistency in themes of selected books, preference for best-sellers and popular works, difficulty in identifying the continuance of individual participation in reading and discussion, librarians’ role limited to organizing programs, and lacking in direct participation in discussion and communication, and events and programs only led by Cheongju City Library without any cooperation from community members.
