The library is a key learning place for many college students, but many times, due to the monotonous environment and pollution in the decoration, etc., the desire and atmosphere of students to study in the library can be greatly reduced. This article is to study the impact of green plants on the reading environment of college libraries. Taking green plants as environmental research objects, this paper uses the same space and environmental changes to use instrumental analysis. And bacteria content. The results show that in an environment with certain green plants in the same environment, the concentration of carbon dioxide decreases by 10% due to the presence of plants, the concentration of carbon monoxide decreases by 5% due to the presence of plants, the oxygen content increases by 6% due to plants, and the number of bacteria also decreases due to the presence of plants. 50%, can also help relieve visual fatigue to a certain extent. The impact of green plants on the reading environment of college libraries has many advantages. Not only can it reduce harmful gases, but it can also purify the air and beautify the environment. Therefore, libraries with green plants should be the focus of the managers of colleges and universities. And vigorous development.
