  • Beautiful building with a great library for all ages inside.
  • A good place to spend weekends.
  • noisy... books are not well categorized.. you usually cant find the book you want.
  • Awesome building
  • 周三闭馆。周六、周日人很多,很难找到座位,还有很多小朋友。其他时间去很不错,环境优雅,书也很多。不太方便的是,书的实际摆放位置与网络查询不一定相符合,可能是读者很多之前移动过,需要耐心找一下。还有一些书可能显示在馆但实际上是在别的分馆。
