The purpose of this study was to examine 80 children's libraries in an effort to suggest some of the right directions for the development and management of children's library programs. A survey was conducted on 80 children's libraries in the nation, and the answer sheets from 55 libraries were gathered and analyzed to find out the extent of use, the major users, the book collections, budgets, the types of programs, the target audience of the programs, the terms of the programs, publicity, evaluation and factors determining the success or failure of the programs. In addition, 21 large children's libraries located in Seoul, Gyeongin, Incheon, Busan, North Chungcheong Province, South Jeolla Province and Jeju Island were visited, and the management were interviewed in order to decipher the types and management of the programs, their spatial construction, tie-ups or collaborations with relevant organizations and the utilization of volunteers. Finally, 29 foreign organizations were selected from six foreign countries including the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan and China, and the cases and states of their programs' management were checked through personal interviews.
