The purpose of this study is to develop the indicators for measuring enjoyment of public libraries by the community. The term, enjoyment is defined as the community members' use and appreciation. Four types of enjoyment indicators are constructed through literature review: basic(environment), state(use), result(outcome), and essential(to enhance enjoyment). The prepared enjoyment indicators are evaluated and selected by focus groups interviews of professionals(researchers, librarians and policy makers). Those selected indicators are tested and revised through a internet survey of 508 Kyungi residents. Based on the analysis of the results this study suggests a total of 46 enjoyment indicators.
