Abstract:The Japanese government has focused on reading activities for teenagers throughout a long period. Due to the reason, even within the current trend of digital media and digital literacy, many Japanese library services for teenagers have evolved in distinct ways and the introduction of these services has created personal, close knit relationships between schools, teachers, and local librarians. From the perspective of local communities and activities, Japanese public librarians actively visit schools and usage of the library among teenagers is quite high. The purpose of this research is to describe and reveal the distinct and advanced reading activities for teenagers in Japanese public libraries in order to learn about affluent engagement activities that may also benefit the digital world. We used case analysis for investigations about reading activities and identified 10 advanced cases and deeply analyzed these cases. In the article we highlight three cases and explain them within the details describing the particular development of booklists and book talks for teenagers and their evolution within the library system in Japan.
