Interesting - but don't plan to stay long
Sep 2020
If you want to feel a sort of "shock and aww" then this place is great. It is shockingly large, there are a shocking number of people there on any given Saturday and looking down from the 8th floor to the lobby of this modern building is aww inspiring. It's not really a place to spend the afternoon, in my opinion, but an hour is fine for tourists. If you read Chinese, well that's a different story...you might want to move in.

Not bookish by the lookish
Aug 2020
The building isn't remotely bookish. I never went inside, but from the outside, it is a beautiful building. I was surprised to find out it was a library. It looks incredibly good from the outside, especially at night.

An architectural wonder

Aside from wandering around, ogling the building, there wasn't much else to do as English-speakers, but if you enjoy architecture, pop in and check this building out

8 stories of books, well organised. There are even machines that clean the books before you take them home

Awesome Architecture
Oct 2019 • Couples
As a traveler I like to take in the various styles of building around the world. Obviously unless you are fluent in Mandarin the library itself is only a visual architectural delight, sadly the reading was beyond me.

Architectural Marvel
Sep 2019
You can tell about the character of a city from its Libraries. The main library in this town is an architectural marvel. It is huge, well stocked and has a bustle on the weekends. Do not miss visiting it if you are in town.

Interesting building
Oct 2019 • Couples
From the outside this looks like an interesting piece of architecture. Not your typical library, if there is such a thing as 'typical '

Main problem for us though was that we walked to the entrance on a Wednesday.

It is closed on Wednesday!
