ABSTRACT

This study examined the demographic characteristics of the elderly who use public libraries in Daejoen Metropolitan City. Their tendencies in using the library, level of satisfaction about the library and how the library affects their life were also evaluated. The survey revealed there were more man than woman users. And most users being relatively healthy sixties, highly educated and belonging to the middle class were indicated. They have been using the library frequently and regularly for a long time and were highly satisfied with the services from librarians and other staffs. Also the public library services had a positive effect on the quality of the life of the elderly. As a result, an effective program for servicing potential visitors who are in poor health, over 70 years old, having lower level of education, living in below standard conditions, and living far from the library were suggested. Elderly women also will be the potential visitors.
