People mostly rely on the Internet to gather information, but the resources on the Internet are occasionally unreliable, invalidated, and limited. Meanwhile, libraries have legitimate and reliable information that can be trusted. Researchers intended to propose a public library in Barangay Baesa to expose its potential worker and learner in a library that is located near the schools and communities of researchers, enrich and nourish educative library, and ensure an effective quality of learning. This study used quantitative research methods of the study. Survey questionnaires were answered by the two groups of respondents, including 10 4th-year Civil Engineering students and 10 4th-year Architecture students. This questionnaire consists of three parts. Part 1 includes the profile of the respondents in terms of name, age, gender, and year/course. Part 2 of the questionnaire used the Likert scale to assess the level of acceptability of the miniature in terms of concepts, designs, feasibility, and presentation. Lastly, part 3 of the questionnaire consists of suggestions and recommendations of the two groups to improve the project. The statistical tools used are relative frequency, weighted mean, t-test, and p-test. As a result, no significant difference was observed between the assessments of the two groups of the respondents. The composite mean of 4.36, which was interpreted as highly acceptable (HA) was observed for the response of the Civil Engineering students. Meanwhile, the Architecture students obtained a total response of 4.43, which was interpreted as HA, with a variance of 0.047, a t-computed of 3.723, and a degree of freedom of 13 with a value of 1.771. The t-critical value was larger than the t-computed value. Therefore, the assessments of the Civil Engineering students are accepted. As a result, the assessments of the two groups of respondents is accepted. The researchers encountered problems such as time management, lack of financial expenses, and constructing the miniature but made the study successful. On the basis of the findings of this study, 4th-year Civil Engineering students and 4th-year Architecture students highly accepted the public library miniature. This study is recommended due to its convenience and effective learning that will benefit the citizens around the community.
