It is one of the best library architecture building in Taiwan entirely made of wood and environment friendly. Open to public, ample space for learning and good reference books are available.

Seems to me a Noah's Arch full of books. The dim leisure atmosphere also feels like a cafe. It's right next to the MRT station, not very big, but worth visit with the hot spring museum and Beitou Thermal Valley(Hell Valley) nearby, preferably in winter....More
