The purpose of this study is to see the impact of the implementation of the Positive Deviance (PD) approach carried out by the public library through the Indonesian Peruseru program, the Gardu Pintar II Public library Gunungkidul Yogyakarta. This study uses qualitative methods, the object being studied is the impact that occurs in village turnover after applying the Positive Deviance (PD) approach. The subject of the study that became the focus of this research was the public library in Gunungkidul Regency, Yogyakarta, which was considered successful in making a PD approach so that it gave a good chance for the library. This study uses a purposive sampling technique as a sampling method, with the selected information being the public library manager in Yogyakarta that is the focus of the Indonesian user program and has felt the impact of the Positive Deviance (PD) method. Data collection techniques are carried out through observation, interviews, and documentation. Observations were made through direct observation of the research location, while interviews were conducted by asking for information from the public library manager who was the subject of the study. The results of this study are the Substation Smart Public library in the Kepek village of Yogyakarta being one of the public libraries that successfully implemented the concept of Positive Deviance (PD). The concept of PD is done as a solution to the problems that occur in the library, namely the lack of appeal of the library to the community due to the lack of facilities, and the inability of libraries to meet the needs of the community. As a library that stands in the countryside, the smart substation library needs the right solution in order to solve the problem by doing unusual activities with the library in general, or what is often referred to as a positive deviation. In carrying out positive deviant activities, the smart substation library carries out several stages, namely identifying problems, understanding community needs, finding solutions as a form of PD, and developing ideas and innovations. Some of the steps taken by the smart substation library have had a great impact on society, in terms of education and the economy. Productive children begin to spend time in the library by reading books and accessing information via the internet. While people like housewives have entrepreneurial skills by making batik cloth, making cakes, and chicken noodles. Thus, it can be concluded that the implementation of PD by smart substation public libraries can improve the quality of education and improve the economy of the community. This study provides a recommendation that looking at the research results obtained through the implementation of the concept of Positive Deviance (PD) conducted by smart substation public libraries, researchers can provide recommendations to other public libraries. Public libraries in other places can imitate PD activities such as those carried out by the smart substation library in Yogyakarta or even other better activities. Of course, PD activities chosen must be adjusted to the problems and needs of the community. Thus, the public library which has been known as a small library and has no innovation is able to become a modern library that is more capable of solving community solutions in the countryside.
