Taipei Public Library – Beitou 北投圖書館

Ahhh…. yes I found love with books in Taiwan! The Taiwanese people are really into books as much they are into coffee.

They give importance to books and in Taiwan libraries are living and breathing with activities and people reading books. One good proof that the Taiwanese people give importance to literature is the Beitou Public Library 北投圖書館


The award winning structure that stands near the Beitou Hot Springs Museum is regarded as one of the finest example of green architecture, this means that the building uses lesser carbon emissions than conventional buildings as it uses solar panels and recycles rain water through different uses.

That is why the Beitou Public Library is worth visiting not only to read books but also to be amazed with its architecture and efficiency.


How To Get To Beitou Public Library

Take the MRT and get off at Xinbeitou Station (捷運新北投站), from there you can walk to the library which is about 400 meters away from the station through Guangming Rd. (光明路).
