  • Kaohsiung travel in the weather pattern as one more used as a rest beforehand. Read a considerable amount of the book in the only book of Japan had asked Japan to book there are at the fifth floor and the corner up and are classified separately for each country, and along the way to break I ate the sandwich set on the second floor. Raisin bread is delicious, so buy the threshing bread. After a break on the fifth floor return book read. Morning 10 am-opening.

  • 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.
