I purposely looked for Starfield Library in COEX Mall as I really wanted to see the place in person. Fantastic! That's the right word for me - tall shelves with sooo many books to browse. The library also has tables, chairs and lamps that encourages you to read and relax. Coffee shops at certain ends of the 2nd floor made it more inviting and relaxing. I can spend the whole day here!

It's not exactly your typical library. In fact, this library is in the middle of the COEX Mall. There is a small cafe in the library, and spots to sit and rest, study, read, or work on something. However, it is not quiet. It is a tourist spot, and people are continually moving in and out. As a librarian myself, I thought it was a beautiful place, but as a patron, I would be annoyed with the crowds and the noise.

It's a big library with a great atmosphere, although I don't think this place would be great for studying or even reading as it can be a bit too noisy for some. All the books are in Korean (duh...) and I found it hard to look for a single English book. But they have a great collection, I supposed...and very Instagrammable too!

The Starfield Library is very photogenic with its 2 story bookshelf so it attracts a lot of photographers. We took the Subway (green line) to Samseong Station. Look for the exit for COEX and you will find the library. The library is inside a big mall with lots of other shops and restaurants. You will see people riding the escalator multiple times to get a good picture. So if you want a photo with no one, you will have to wait awhile.

The Starfield Library, which is pretty and impressive and beautiful. Two floors library with lots of colors and places to eat. Basically the only highlight of the Starfield COEX Mall which is pretty average.

Still at the bottom of the library you will find adults posing with big teddy bears, etc, etc common of the infantile immaturity of South Koreans.

But the beauty value of the library is there to be seen and for all to appreciate. Except for the Starfield Library which you can access directly from the streets, the rest of the mall is a waste of pure time.

This does not disappoint! A fantastic design! This is worth a stop if you’re near Coex. I was staying at the Park Hyatt in Gangnam and this is in my friends itinerary for me to see.
Nice spot to sit and relax and have your IG worthy pictures taken.

We took the subway to Samseong station (Line 2) to check out the COEX mall. The mall is huge, with an aquarium, so it took us a while to find the Starfield Library. It is located opposite the Kakao Friends' store, and when you walk in, it was impressive. Not sure how librarians or users access the books on the top shelves though?

If you visit Kangnam sighseeing and visiting COEX is a must. We were deeply surprised and impressed by this public library and did not expect it at an commercialised spot like COEX or Kangnam. Quite place to take a rest and spend some time for reading. Absolutely worth a visit.

The former food court has become a public library. It's a good place to take a look, read a book or relax.
Many locals and foreign visitors. And it wasn't that crowded.
There are free e-books, too.

A wonderful place for reading and catching up some knowledge that feeds the mind. A place to have some quiet time to spend and reflect and resetting goals for 2020. An amazing huge library full of thousands of books with amazing people around having the same thoughts and mind to increase their knowledge that feeds and blossom the mind. A wonderful ambience and environment to be in; there are plenty of cafes nearby this library ☺️☺️☺️
