  • 每次來到高雄找朋友都與朋友約在這裡 外觀很漂亮 很適合拍照 裡面書籍種類繁多 樓上中間還有花園 頂樓還可以看風景 
  • 經由建築師的導覽,了解這棟公共建築精品的設計理念。因為高雄地處熱帶,夏季漫長炎熱,所以希望營造一處如大樹般供人休憩的場所,同時又富藏圖書,滋養每個人的心靈。 來到高雄圖書總館,一定要到B1欣賞兒童圖書區,除了專為小朋友設計的閱讀與活動空間外,兒童廁所則是充滿繽紛美麗的海洋拼貼,有小丑魚尼莫、有珊瑚、更有令人咋舌的大鯨魚悠游,值得觀賞。 頂樓則可遠眺高雄港的輪船以及西子灣與旗津合抱的港都吞吐口,新建...  more »
  • I feel the enthusiasm in the height of the Kaohsiung City's culture and education. I wish I had such facilities in Japan, many users.

  • Some books, but not enough tables. I went on a Thursday afternoon. All tables by the windows and otherwise were taken by sleeping young people who enjoy the comfort of a silent room with nice view and AC. The same was true for the other seating areas. There is only one working area on the fifth floor, where you can sit down and plug in your own laptop. It surrounds the staircase and has maybe twenty places. All were taken, so I left and worked from a coffee shop across the street.
  • Beautiful is beautiful...but if you are looking for a quiet place to sit down and use your computer you will be disappointed: only 15 or 20 seats with electric plugs, so if you are not one of these fastest users that come here early in the day (and then leave their things there so no one else can use the plugs), just forget abt this obsolete library
  • A well designed and visually pleasant environment. Usually crowded with tourists during weekend; best to avoid if you seek quietness.
  • Best library i had ever visited. The building itself is already a piece of art, beautiful and stylish, with a numbers of art piece like designs. Among them are the four different columns that are supporting the building. It was really a pleasure to visit this library.
  • Kaohsiung Main Public Library, a spectacular building with comfortable environment for reading. Nice place to visit. Come, sit down and read, have a peaceful time, just like sitting casually in an oasis.
