The library here is okay...I have never known such security just to get in a library before. Admittedly we did come here on a whim to see the stunning 'eye' but however, this library is a good library but the spectacularly designed one is Tianjin...More

I go to this library on a regular basis. It is in a great location with a mall, concert hall and three museums beside it. The library is peaceful and spacious. They do have foreign books but it is a 500¥ deposit for a foreign...More

This is the Tianjin Library (15 Fukang Road, Nankai District, Tianjin 300191) located in Tianjin, and is often mistaken by foreigners with the Tianjin Binhai Library (No.347 Xusheng Road, Binhai New Area, Tianjin 300457). The latter was newly opened in 2017, in a very futuristic...More

The pictures shown here are not of Tianjin library. The place you actually wants to visit is called "Binhai Library". It is quite far from the Fukang Road. Some people posted pictures of Binhai Library on this page. This misunderstanding wasted a lot time for...More

15 Fukang Road is indeed A library but not THE library. The library you probably want to see is 30+ miles outside of the city by the coast. It’s not the library next to the museum of natural history either, although that one is nice.

Tianjin Library was one of my favorite finds when I first arrived here. The outside looks very ordinary but on the inside, you'll find sprawling walkways and floors fulled with balcony seats and 20 foot tall book cases. I was really excited to come here...More

Absolutely love this place. I can't stress how beautiful this place is on the inside - it's white, it's architecturally-designed and well put together. It's a photographer's paradise!!

It was a very modern building in the 80s and fairly well maintained. A nice place to quietly sit down and read something. My review might be biased since it was my childhood memory.

This place is probably not the best library you'd ever visit, especially if you've been to places like the New York City public library or the Library of Congress. But, it was a nice surprise to walk into this place that has an airy feel...More
