Abstract: 
Public libraries play an important role in people's opportunity to receive information and cultural products. This paper studied the spatial distribution, availabilities and facilities of public libraries of No. 12 district in Tehran. First, the basic maps and required information such as population rate, education and infrastructures and facilities were gathered and other information related to the users of the libraries was collected using an appropriate questionnaire. Results of this study indicated that although the population rate in the study area is less than in the other districts of in Tehran, but the frequency of libraries is more. Use of geographic information systems functions determined a 1000 m radius around the libraries and extracted the attributed data for each of the studied cells. The study of the determined cells around each library indicated that the exciting libraries have no optimum distribution. Also it showed that the existing facilities and possibilities are not according to the population rate that lived in the 1000 m applied radius of each library. To solve the present problems, maximum use of the other cultural spaces and establishment of new libraries in the studied area are suggested.
