Did not spend too long inside but great to pop in and have a look at the modern, huge public library. Free facilities and technology (ipads, touchscreen newspapers etc)

The library is a beautiful building, with modern architecture and a very spacious hall. It is worthy to visit even if it's just a walk from the entrance to the exit at the other side. It has good content in foreign language to time in a very pleasant place. There is a special room for the visually impaired that serves as a good example to be followed. It is one of these places that takes little time to see if you are in a hurry, or half a day if you are really interested.

Impressive, new library building situated near the Opera House and the Guangzhou Museum, caters to different segments of the city's population, including a room for the visually impaired, a family (children's) section, foreign language periodicals and books. Quiet and pleasant atmosphere. As a retired reference librarian, I visited the reference section on the 8th floor and found a bookcase with English reference books.

This is a great addition to the center of GZ. I wish every city had a library as impressive as this, but the most cities usually give away space like this to luxury shopping malls, 5-star hotels, and offices. Hat's off to Guangzhou's city planners for their sensibilities and the avoidance of the spaceship-looking skyscrapers in the CBD.
