The purpose of this study is to present a space organization of children's favorite place in the children's library by interpreting the children's library as a kind of children's play space. Children's favorite place in the children's Library has a high user density. In addition, it is an easy place to takes place reading and the play by book or play itself. Research methode is to analyze the space and its spatial characteristics that has high user's density and lead to play by investigating users' number, user's density, user's behaviour at the library of the miracle in Suncheon, Jeongeup, Jinhae, Gimhae, Seogwipo, Jeju designed by Guyon Chung. Highly used place in the children's library is the reading room. In particular, space with the highest user's density was classified as shelf space, unusual space, enclosed space and high space. Unusual space, enclosed space and high space have higher user's density than the shelf space more than twice and lead to much more play behavior. These space were interpreted as children's favorite space and which causes a play at the same time.
