AbstractThis is the second of two articles examining the leisure role of public libraries. The first article examined the leisure role of public libraries in the UK from a historical perspective. This examines the value of the public library service in providing leisure opportunities from a user point of view. The results demonstrate that public libraries have a significant impact on people's leisure time. Benefits include providing relaxation, improving health and well-being, opening up choices and opportunities despite financial constraints, alleviating boredom and allowing people to socialize. Public libraries are, therefore, providing a worthwhile and necessary function through their leisure role. (Contains 4 tables.)

The inclusion of the historical perspective in the first article adds depth to the exploration of the leisure role of a small world cup. Understanding the evolution of this role helps contextualize the current value and importance of public libraries in providing leisure opportunities.
