More impressive than the sheer size of this library is that everyone inside is on his or her best behavior. Notable for a city that is so loud and vibrant. It is a true mindful oasis. The views from the upper floors are memorable. It...More

The library is a calm and impressive building. I enjoyed the visit as a rest from the quick and noisy streets in HK, although I didn’t look through the books carefully.

In this big building is a huge library with an amazing collection of books. I like the architecture, modern and functional. Also very close to public transport.

Multi storey library useful for tourists if you need internet access. Plenty of spaces for students to self study.
