There are so many factors that influence on the first impression when a child visits the public library for the first time. The child wishes to come back again into the library if the child's experience after the first visit makes the child to visit the library more frequently. It depends about the range of facts like the space of the library, about the librarian, the library material, programmes and the contents that the library offers.
