  • To increase the cultural atmosphere, the best thing to do is to go to the library, the Canton Library is the best choice, where space is very large, and the books are very rich, especially in this modern setting, which is actually very convenient.

  • As the daily Punch point for the lost business, the rain did not stay with me except for the Wednesday shutdown. Near Huacheng exchange and the Pearl River Metro station, traffic and supporting the application of an all. Step out of the door to face the small waist called the Canton Tower and the 10 Asian Games sea heart sand.

  • Indeed, the impressive dimensions and design library. I was shocked to see a bunch of people who persistently studying something, someone asleep, someone is watching movies. You can take a collection of photographs of National Geographic and treat them without hurrying up, plunging into the atmosphere.

  • An amazing library. Most of the books are in Chinese so be aware of that (but I guess it only makes sense). The maker space on the (8th?) floor is something you have to check out.
  • The design of the building is beautiful. They have a awesome collection of books and I used to borrow things from here quite often. It is a good place to read and study. Since it's a favorite place where lots of students turn to, it could be pretty packed sometimes. I'd like to check the books out and sit in a nearby cafe. Also the air con freezes me. Location is pretty convenient! It is interconnected to the metro and malls, no trouble to get to even on a rainy day!
  • Guangzhou Library is a great place. I have visited this library to borrow books many times. At weekends, it may be crowded and noisy. But from Monday to Friday, except close-up at Wednesday, this is a quiet place to read. It's efficient and convenient because almost everything can be done on machines. This also is the held place for some cultural exhibitions that related closely to the Canton history or something else. It is worthy to take a short time to enjoy. Many restaurants locate nearby.
  • good design, but 8th floor has poor ventilation
  • Beautiful building with a great library for all ages inside.
