    This library is not know to many people but it's good. You don't get to see such a good setting and beautiful architecture in libraries around the world. The garden and the rooms were very attractive.

    This is a gem of a place for quiet and solitude.
    Don't come between 4:00-5:30 as there is a bunch of school kids that come sometimes and it becomes a bit unruly.
    Otherwise, come to read a newspaper (scmp is available) or bring a book and relax.
    In the heat of summer, the air conditioning is perfect!

    This is a a public library that opened in 2016 along Rua da Ribeia do Patane on the Macau Peninsula. Here you see seven old buildings from the 1930's each painted a different colour from the outside. However, as you approach, you will quickly see that it is now a single large building that functions as a modern library.

    The Patane Library is three floors tall and is open to the public including tourist visitors. Opening ours are 8am to 12am from Tuesday to Sunday and 2pm to 12am on Mondays.

    One of the lesser known attractions in Macau that I like to pass by and have a look at from time to time is the Chinese Pavilion Library in front of the San Francisco Garden, very near to Grand Lisboa Hotel.

    This is an octagonal-shaped pavilion that serves as a public library for local residents. Built in the 1920's, it is charming little place to see. You can enter and take a quick look around during opening hours. Nobody minds. Otherwise, simply enjoy from the outside when passing by.

    In the end, the Chinese pavilion, because it is not a World Heritage attraction, receives very little tourism promotion and almost no visitors yet it is located just 5 minutes walk from the Macau World Heritage area and can be conveniently seen for anyone with interest in interesting architectural buildings

    Macau has many colonial period buildings that are nice for viewing including the collection that line Tap Seac Square in the St. Lazarus district. Macao Central Library occupies one of these old properties, next to fellow heritage buildings which serve as the Historical Archives and the Tap Seac Gallery.

    This building is Neo-classical with a bronze and yellow cream colour facade with embedded columns and arched windows. You can take nice pictures of the Macau Central Library and other attractive heritage buildings by standing back in the middle of the square.

    Note: Additional colonial buildings of a similar appearance stretch to the northeast along Avenue Conselheiro Ferreia de Almeida street to the Lou Lim Ieoc Garden. Similarly, a short walk to the southwest and west, visitors will find a host of more colonial period buildings and atmospheric European(ish) streetscapes.
