  • 在新北投站附近,與鄰近景點連成一氣,可慢慢逛,或可照照相。書籍不太新但建築很有特色。為一個照相好地點。  more »
  • Stylish buildings come into view walking in Beitou Park. Starbucks look more stylish building is the library. Many tourists take pictures from outside not inside, but the views and is popular as a sightseeing spot.

  • 這不只是一個觀光景點,更是一個觀光遊覽地區,穿流不息的人群,大部份都不是來看書的,而是來拍照的,做為一個多次票選入圍全世界最具特色的圖書館之一,當然會吸引許多遊客前來,而且週邊又有溫泉博物館及北投公園及各式湯屋,這裡本來就是極具有吸引力的地方。  more »

  • The building itself is rated as one of most beautiful green building around the globe. The visitors are actually more than real library-goers there. So, for people who go there to enjoy reading might be interrupted by visitors. There are not many seats in it, and no study room. Likely, the only municipal library without study room in the city.
  • Beautiful and special library in Taipei city. Now there's a part of "Pokémon Go holyland" in Taipei!! You can see a lot of crazy Taiwanese pokémon trainers here!
  • Very special library, also worth to visit even you don't want to look in any book, just sit down and enjoy, there are desks there too so u can go there for studying, only problem in winter no heating, they even open all windows and the e.g. 12°C "warm" air blows through the whole place
  • Beautiful structure with wood and glass. Maybe some kind of Pokemon nest around here. 1000s of men & women & kids catch Pokemon together, very interesting!!!
  • Opened in November 2006, the Beitou Library is one of the most energy efficient efficient and environmental friendly architectures of Asia! With over 20,000 books (Eng & Chinese titles), you will be spoilt with options. With rising temperature towards summer, this is a great place to escape the heat!
