In a modern knowledge society, a person who is personally productive is one who knows how to learn. An individual who knows how to learn is qualified for a quality and competitive life. These skills and abilities are acquired not only through formal education but also through lifelong learning in the form of information literacy. As we live in the world of fast technological changes in which we produce knowledge more than we can assimilate, knowledge rests outside the individual, organized in a way that is accessible to anyone who has the skills of finding, evaluating, organizing and selecting information and ultimately integrating into existing knowledge. With the aim of exploring the information literacy of the users of the public library, this work was based on the results of the survey conducted and on a variety of literature that provided the theoretical insights. The underlying assumptions of this paper were that the results of the survey would show differences in the level of information literacy among the opposing groups depending on their age and experience and talk about the need for information literacy, potentially directed towards the pre-school population, as lifelong learning, enabling users acting in the existing society of knowledge , and the entire community constantly developing and advancing.
