This book discussed about the perception of reading habits among the user community in public libraries. Public libraries are to educate all the people irrespective of caste, creed, and age at a very nominal fee. The public library movement as it was known as a vehicle to pursue an idea of opportunity not only to read. But use books and libraries to broaden their horizon and to expand the range and depth of interest as individual and as communities chance to improve their qualities in their lives. To have more interest in reading habits, every year more books are added, own buildings are constructed and other facilities are provided for the libraries. The reading activity has always been seen as an important element in a person's culture and education. The reading habit influences in the promotion of one's personal development in particular and social progress in general. Regular and systematic reading sharpens the intellect, refines the emotions, elevates tastes and provides perspectives for one's living; and thereby prepares a person for an effective participation in the social, religious, cultural and political life. This book would be valuable addition to the LIS literature.
