ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to explore tasks for improving performance skills by comparing and analyzing the current status of reading marathon competitions operated in public libraries, and to provide guidelines for institutions to operating of this competition in the future. In order to achieve the research purpose, the competition status information collected in 2021 for five public libraries operating reading marathon competitions from before the COVID-19 pandemic were collected and the contents were compared and analyzed. As a result, the average period for five public libraries running a reading marathon was 10 years, and the average period for each year was 5.87 months. In addition, children had the highest rate of completion, and as compensation for completion, certificates were issued and the number of loans increased the most. However, the competition managers complained of difficulties in securing and increasing applicants and calculating the distance reached, so based on the analysis, they developed tasks to improve the performance of the reading marathon from several different solution suggestions.
