        Digital native generation grows up with information technology attached to their daily life. This advantage changes their way to find information, only with one click they have all the answers in their gadget. This situation effect library that used to be the source of information, numbers of library visit has been reduced significantly in the last century. Therefore library needs basic changes to accommodate digital native generation. Library needs to facilitate their need by repositioning itself as a community hub, a place to meet, interact, learn and collaborate. Anish I and Arish Ibrahim (2014), propose to use Systematic Layout Planning (SLP) to design library facility layout. The purpose is to maximize the satisfaction of employee, management, and library users. This paper gives the framework for systematic layout planning but has not applied it using computer simulation tool such as CRAFT. Research is conducted to four universities owned libraries in Surabaya, Indonesia. Two from state universities and another two from private universities. A heuristic improvement algorithm CRAFT (Computerised Relative Allocation of Facilities Technique) will be applied to relayout library facilities. Adjustment to each facility will also be done and as the result, new library facility layout will be more suitable to meet digital native generation needs. The implication of this adjustment is additional investment in new facilities and repositioning current layout.
