ABSTRACT

A small library can be used as a place of cultural communication and educational experience for members of the local community that can fill the gaps of public libraries. In this study, the motives of users of small libraries were investigated. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 45 users of small libraries, and their perceptions from their experiences were classified into four categories, ‘attention’, ‘relevance’, ‘confidence’, and ‘satisfaction’, and each factor was investigated. Small libraries showed that effective analysis, management, and design of factors related to the four motive classifications could further improve the opportunities of local community residents to find small libraries.
