Beitou Public Library Wins International Recognition

The Beitou Public Library is one of the ten coolest green buildings around the world, according to When On Earth website.
This unique green building located in Beitou District also appeared on CNN’s “Step inside 27 fascinating libraries” report in April of 2014, as well as in Flavorwire.com’s “The 25 Most Beautiful Public Libraries in the World” article published in the same year.
The library was also recognized by the National Architecture Awards in October of 2014.
After undergoing renovations, the overhauled Taipei Public Library Beitou Branch reopened on November 17, 2006. The revamped structure was given a diamond rating for green buildings by the government, making it the first library to receive the certification on the island.
The library attracts an average of over 55,000 visitors per month and houses a collection of approximately 22,000 books and publications.
