What people are saying:

I used to come here to study when I was in the exams, because it was very quiet. This time I was the first time I had visited the library officially, though I had been here dozens of times before. The library is very large and beautifully designed. It feels like visiting the library can enhance the culture. It is located in the center of the city and has very convenient transportation. The library is very big, very clean and very beautiful. Many tourists come to take pictures. Every exit has automatic doors, I feel intimate~
