I found this library because it’s illuminated so beautiful.
This library has 5th floor and theater on the top floor.
Well designed for visitors、easy to find categories. many desks, clean and quiet.
And open until 22 o’clock midnight.
Kaohsiung residents are happy to have such excellent library.

8 open and spacious floors of books, desks and trees.

After visiting the Dream Mall, we took the Tram 2 stops north to visit this 2014 library. We took the escalator to the first floor lobby/cafe and then the elevator to the 8th floor garden. We enjoyed the rooftop flowers and cinnamon trees but couldn't take our eyes off the 2014 Exhibition Center, the 1997 85 Sky Tower and the distant port.
Nearly as dramatic was the spiraling stairway below the interior planting of 8 Bayberry trees. The acre space on each of the floors is remarkably open and light using glass walls, a web of 4" steel bracing to replace standard columns and AC vents in the floor.
Very modern and unique design by a Japanese architect.

Beautiful illumination

I didn’t go inside, but I just took a picture from outside. The illumination is really beautiful. It is a pity that my picture cannot transmit its beauty.

Modern Library

Great library. The layout of books is just like bookstore. There are lots of variety of books. In the afternoon, you can also go up to the top to see the sunset. You can see 85 building and Kaohsiung harbor from there. Amazing view. However, if you are planning to go there to study, it can be quiet noisy during exam season as lots of students will go there to study/chat/gathering. It is also hard to find a seat. But if you avoid the exam season, it is a great place to read some books.

Pretty librady

This library is made of window glass on all levels and is exceptionally pretty especially at night when it glows with the yellow lighting and the glass becomes completely transparent. Great place for a photo!

Nice place to hang out

The building itself is already very attractive. When u arrived the second floor, it looks like an architect more than a library. Free computer and WiFi for the public to use. They also got some video for us to borrow

Unexpected pleasure
Nov 2018 • Friends
We stumbled upon this library, seeing many people go in and curious about what was there. It was amazing and beautiful and peaceful and modern and free. I loved that they had blind date with a book, something my librarian friend does at her library. And book faces too. Great English section. But I especially liked seeing all the students sitting on the floor and outside and at low desks comfortably studying. Great outdoor areas. Amazing views and architecture. The children’s area was delightful too. So glad we found this.
