A brief look around on Wednesday 03/04/19, an unusual designed Library and almost have a feeling it's floating & reminded us of an Scandinavian structure. A relaxing water feature at the front of the structure. We didn't have time to browse inside.

Beitou Public Library is located in Beitou Park. Its architecture, like a resort hotel, is noticeable. It matches perfectly with surrounding. Even if you are tourist, you can go inside to take a look.

Before visiting Beitou Public Museum, we walked past this beautiful building. However, it was a pity that we didn't actually know it is a public library. Nevertheless, it provided a great landscape for photo taking.

This library is done completely with wood. Really peaceful and people are so educated. There are also people doing painting in front of the bridge.

Unfortunately the library seems to be under renovation now so no visitors allowed. The wooden architecture still looks interesting despite the cladding

Nice library on a nice spot in the park but certainly not a must visit, not even when you are in Beitou.
