The purpose of this study was to explore the possibilities of the transition to the Rhizome-type Library in post COVID-19 era. The cases and theories were considered to understand the characteristics of the Rhizome-type Spatial Structure. The spatial structure of the Rhizome-type Library has De-centrality, Independence, Diversity and partly De-hierarchicality, De-territorialisation, Nomadic, Ambiguity, Conjunctivity. The results of this study were as follows; First, the Rhizome-type Library will be easy to access the neighborhood, which will facilitate the convenience of users. Second, the Rhizome-type Library can be placed in very small places in the neighborhood and provide variety of services and also personal space for reading, learning, and works. Third, the Rhizome-type Library has flexible and changeable spatial forms and the form can be customized. And lastly, the Rhizome-type Library has the potential to evolve to include the functions of other Public Service Facilities, so the Rhizome-type Library can be used as an alternative to large Public Service Facilities in unexpected disaster situations, such as COVID-19. In conclusion, the Rhizome-type Library could be a way to change the paradigm of library service and space in the post COVID-19 era.
