Abstract


The relevance of this study is due to the importance of expanding children’s passion in reading through the project “Learning Station Community” (LSC). It is important that children are motivated by a genuine desire or need to read. The reading process is done pleasurably and the books provided are the colorful books with an interesting story to attract the children desire to read. This study applied the qualitative method and the data collected based on a combination of field research and interviews with children. As the results, this study found that by providing a comfortable place to learn, creating a pleasant reading environment and talk to children about what they do and do not like to read can boost their desire to read. The children admitted that they were amused to read the book in the mini library provided by the Learning Station Community since the environment in the library is designed casually and comfortable to learn. Additionally, children argued that reading books with friends is a greater delight than reading alone at home. Hence, the project of Learning Station Community is a great project to create situational interest and to encourage children’s passion in reading.
