Currently, library plays major role in the social, political, economic, and cultural development of a society. It also plays important role in preserving and improving the culture, formal education, and self-education and leisure time. Library in the society where knowledge and communicative means become complex plays more important role than before. Children in the early years of their life have almost no knowledge of the world around themselves, and their readiness for its identification is largely affected by environmental conditions. They are very curious and try to understand the world around themselves. Each child should obtain knowledge of himself and he should be able to communicate with the world around himself. Based on these individual differences, every child should have the ability to understand, absorb, adapt, and coordinate with realities and foster his ideas and beliefs. Childhood is the most sensitive age period in the society and in their most important years of their life, when the base of their personal, physical, and social growth is formed, they need to experience social life at their scale and this requires providing space for children. In the present study, it was tried that a library to be designed that is special for children to meet their needs and a childhood and intimate space to be provided, free from turmoil of the world of adults and full of joy in which child finds an opportunity to express new ideas and foster his capacities and creativity.
