The study examined the perception of married (men) senior members of staff of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu-ode, Ogun State on the positive influence of bibliotherapy on men's participation in reproductive health. The sampled population consisted of 120 respondents who were divided into two strata of teaching and Non-teaching senior staff male that are married. A Likert – type questionnaire on a four (4) point rating scale was developed for the study. Data were analysed using chi-square statistics for the hypotheses formulated. The findings showed that bibliotherapy will not significantly influence men's participatory role in family planning and also that bibliotherpay will have significant influence on men's patronage of reproductive health (RH) services and effective communication of couples on sexuality and reproductive health matters. It is recommended that bibliotherapeutic programmes should be used the more for attitudinal change especially for sexuality related problems and that reproductive health providers should develop programmes that will encourage couple to communication and address men's fears, concerns and negative beliefs in reproductive health.
