Abstract This study aims to prepare basic data to judge the openness of the public libraries as open places according to their place meaning. Today, as public libraries overcome their place limitations through various media, it has become a complex space for a social function that gathers and connects people, not just a place to acquire knowledge. As the spatial composition of the public libraries become complex and space focusing user, the reading methods are diversified, and various reading space for this are appearing. Therefore, as public libraries’ programs become more diverse, this study analyzes the reading space of user-centred public libraries and aims to examine public libraries as open places through objective data. To analyze the degree of openness of the reading space in public libraries, this study obtained spatial data including drawings through the survey and data requests of the public libraries as subjects of the study. By analyzing the data obtained through analysis indicators of spatial, this study examines the role and relationship of the entire public libraries’ space and analyzes the spatial depth and spatial accessibility by drawing a ‘Justified-Graph’ to objectively analyze the reading space of public libraries. Lastly, this study concludes by analyzing the user behavior of the reading space provided by the public libraries and the relationship with other internal facilities by examining the results calculated by spatial analysis in chronological order.
