  • 晚上來可以欣賞其絢麗的外觀,真的很漂亮。有自習區還有大量的藏書,影印去也有舒服的沙發椅可悠閒的看。每層的室內設計都很不錯,適合在這裡沉靜一整天! 
  • 吸引人的外型會讓你留戀,在外面拍完照才發現裡面更多驚喜,堪稱全台最美圖書館!適合大小朋友一起來走走。 
  • 舒適寬敞的空間 閱讀大量書籍的好地方 頂樓鳥瞰輕軌列車的進出站是另一項高雄特色 原來高雄的特色就在陸海空間完成了

  • 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.
