ABSTRACT

This study aims to determine the feasibility of the utilization model in school to increase students’ reading interest and measure the effectiveness of the school library utilization model. This study uses a research and development approach by the theory of Borg and Gall. The research subjects were Library in Bubutan IV Elementary School Surabaya, Indonesia, with the research respondents being all students. The results showed that the library utilization model was very effective in increasing students' reading interest and reading ability. The results of measuring the Reading Text Level (RTL) of students showed that out of a total of 872 students, there were only 3.1% of students whose RTL level was still below the minimum standard. Thus, the model of school library utilization is significantly able to increase students' reading interest and reading ability. We recommended that the results of this study provide benefits for the practitioner to improve synergy in all relevant agencies to increase students' reading interest and reading ability since elementary level.
