The library is a calm and impressive building. I enjoyed the visit as a rest from the quick and noisy streets in HK, although I didn’t look through the books carefully.

A great place to escape the noise and chaos of the Hong Kong streets. This modern, multi-level library is a wonderful way to spend a few quiet hours lost in books. There is a tremendous selection of English language books, magazines and newspapers. There are...More

While the decor and architecture of this building is somewhat dated, this majestic building in land scarced Hong Kong, right next to Victoria Park is a quiet oasis from the maddening crowd at nearby Causeway Bay! The library is very well-stocked and you can read...More

I like the front of the building, the statute of the rotating earth with water is worth a photo. It's also close to a local temple, 5 minutes walk only.

The library did not have a good design with an ugly facade and most of the area inside was wasted. There were security people on each floor spying on library users. Weird.

In this big building is a huge library with an amazing collection of books. I like the architecture, modern and functional. Also very close to public transport.

Multi storey library useful for tourists if you need internet access. Plenty of spaces for students to self study.

It is the biggest library in HK with many floors. There is also a toy library on the 1/F. You must book before as it is always full. It is almost impossible to go there by walk in. It is worth to go if you...More
