Well i was shocked to see the collection of books and especially English language books.The place is well maintained and everyone are usually into their own world. One can just peacefully read books and have a great time

Didn't really went for the books, more of a walking by walking inside experience, the building itself is worth a visit

good location for walking and seeing many of the modern architecture in Guangzhou . There are also many good restaurants in the area. If you visit Guangzhou this is one of the areas you must explore

A modern looking library centrally located. It is basically right next to the Guangdong Museum. It would be wonderful if the library managed to provide more seats for visitors, most of the people were reading books while sitting on the floor.

Beautiful environment conducive to studying! Notes: Bring your valuables with you when you go to the washroom. English selection is not great but that's perfectly within reason.

Very large and modern library. Full of local people and few tourists. If you like books and massively big libraries than this one is definitely worth a visit during a day trip in Guangzhou.

Visited the GUangzhou Library just to browse. The facade was impressive to say the least. The library was full of students. Largest library I have ever seen.
