Home Libraries and their Roles in Social Changes among Rural Communities in Indonesia
The main aim of this paper is to explore home libraries’ involvement in social changes in the rural area of Kepek, Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta. These home libraries mainly work as a collection provider at every house managed by a reading centre known as TBM (Community Reading Garden). This research used conceptual frameworks of social changes based on Ogburn and Bourdieu. Qualitative method was used to collect data using observation, interview, and documentation. The collected data was analysed through Miles and Huberman model including display, reduction, and conclusion/verification. The findings show that social changes occur through four phases, namely invention/discovery, diffusion, accumulation, and adaptation. These changes also found dynamic contestation between agency and structure in the home library program. The contestation creates dynamics in education and economy among actors in Kepek communities.
