ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the thoughts about the emergence of a library as the third place where a person spends time aside from his or her home and workplace. Ray Oldenburg asserts in his book "The Great, Good Place," that third places are crucial for civil society, democracy, and civic engagement. Public libraries are considered as civic information centers, public forums, and enablers of civic literary.
