This research is aimed to create the foundations that a library can maintain solid roles as repository of human knowledge and achieve sustainable development in the era of the $4^{th}$ industrial revolution. First, we performed PEST analysis about domestic and foreign trends & cases about policies, libraries, librarians, and information services related to the $4^{th}$ Industrial Revolution. Based on the PEST analysis, we considered the changing trends about the various environmental factors surrounding the library, and derived the strategic implications for directions of the future library. For the leading system of library in preparation for the era of the $4^{th}$ industrial revolution, we re-established the roles and functions of the future library and proposed the establishment strategies toward the future library.
