This descriptive study was purposely conducted to find out the degree of clients satisfaction and services of the University Library of the Aklan State University Main Campus for the academic year 2016-2017. The data revealed that the majority of the respondents visited and used the library weekly and more than three-fourths of the client-respondents visited the Aklan State University main library to look for library materials on the shelves.
