We have been there few times with and without our granchildren and we always enjoy the location. You can stroll around and enjoy the nice house.

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.
