There are very few studies on the guidance service which is one of the important reference and information service function in the library. During the last decades, Readers' Advisory Service has become one of the most interesting and demanding function in many Public libraries of the western world. This paper Introduces the background theory of Readers' Advisory Service and the basic skills for readers' advisors. Library managers and library schools can get ideas from this paper in planning reading programs for adult library users and training programs for library staff and LIS students.
