The basic elements such as building, budget, user, collection, staff, and technology determine the effectiveness and efficiency of libraries. Among these elements, library buildings undertook important functions such as preserving information sources in appropriate environments, protecting them, making them available quickly and easily, and providing an environment that encourages research and reading. It is the fact that recent developments in information and communication technologies affect library buildings. This study discusses the impacts of robots and artificial intelligence applications on library buildings and architectures. It also provides some suggestions for using robot and artificial intelligence applications in the existing and new library buildings.
