Abstract:As the participants involved themselves in the unit, some of the features of importance were: accessibility of the library and books, a special theme, an adequate collection of books and materials (print and nonprint) supporting the theme, an inviting environment, social interactions, awards and incentives, reading guidance (i.e., the special bibliography or suggestion given by the librarian), book choice, activities related to the theme, and an interested facilitator. The intervention technique of this unit was intensive involvement which seemed to be the determinant factor in the change of any participant.
