Purpose: In this Research, we aim to evaluate the effect of cultural activities of public librarians on promoting the circulation rate of Goharshad middle school library.
Methodology: This research implemented by quasi-experimental method using One–group pre-test and post-test design. Two questionnaires are used as tool measuring book loan rate of students before and after cultural activities. We used 4 questions in pre-test and 8 questions in post-test. The population of this research included 86 students in three classes. To examine the hypotheses, we used Chi-Square and Paired Samples t test.
Findings: The results showed that respondents in pre-test stated that they book loan rate is Twice a month (mean score 38, 44.2 percent). After implementation of cultural programs for students, they stated that book loan rate of them increased around 3 time a month (mean score 45, 52.3 percent). Besides, we used one sample t test for measuring the significance of difference between mean scores in pre-test and post-test and we found that the difference is statistically significant. Likewise, second hypothesis of the research was statistically approved (Pvalue of Chi-Square test=0.006 <0.01).
Originality/Value: this research is original because of clearing the effect of cultural activities of public librarians that work in a public library around a school on circulation rate of school library and book loan measure of students that is a sign of increase in book reading behavior.
