Judging from the arrangements, services to collections, the feeling that Mayor of Sibolga felt was not much different like when visiting libraries in Indonesia, especially in the Public Library of Sibolga City. Various programs that have been initiated by the Mayor have resembled with what was witnessed and felt, starting from book arrangement, IT-based services, the availability of complete collections, to the existence of special rooms that is comfortable and indulgent as well as attracting users to linger here. In line with the function of the library which is not only a place to read and borrow books, but also can be a place for educational recreation for public.

However, one thing that become concern and compassion is when many parents accompany their children to visit library looking for textbooks and story books that lead to an increase in reading fondness from an early age. A good and motivating culture can enhance the early reading fondness so that people's intelligence is also increasing.
