          Abstract

          This paper illustrates a physical improvement programme in a primary school library through a participatory process involving children in designing and renovating the space. The improvement of library space has contributed positively in promoting children’s active use of the library space. The involvement of children in the process has also promoted their positive attitude and sense of belonging toward the space. Commitment building of the whole school community becomes a challenge during the process and beyond. Promoting children’s active role in the development, management and maintenance of the space becomes important to ensure sustainability after the programme.
