  • 很喜歡去的地方,樓層動線規畫很清楚, 建築非常漂亮,早晚各有不同風味 除了圖書還有視聽包廂(可惜位置不多) 藏書非常豐富,常常有新書可看 
  • 從位處捷運三多商圈站的酒店步行而至也只是10多分鐘....很容易便找到了....內裏書籍繁多....也有很多國外雜誌供借閱.....往天台也可欣賞附近的景觀 
  • The modern building has a tasteful yet practical design, fittingly exhibits Kaohsiung's ambition on the world stage. The site is a splendid icon in the city center especially when well lit up at night...  more »

  • 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.
