In recent years, Pingtung, the southernmost county, has been stepping up its efforts to promote local culture, adding another stunning public library to its territory.

After a two-year renovation, the Pingtung County Library, located in the city center, reopened to the public on Aug. 28.

The glass-paneled library is surrounded by lush greenery, making you feel like you’re reading in the forest.

屏東總圖的前身是擁有30年歷史的老建築,歷經兩年的改造整修,採用新舊建物交融的方式,將整體升級又保留大部分屏東人的記憶。

The renovation upgraded the whole building while retaining most of the memories cherished by the Pingtung people.

在外觀部分,同樣座落於屏東市千禧公園旁,佔地約5公頃,更特別保留整片50年老樟樹林,讓圖書館置身在大自然中,挑高的空間加上大面積的玻璃窗,讓採光極佳,也反射了樹林的綠意盎然。

Sitting next to the Qianxi Park in Pingtung City, the library occupies about 5 hectares within a wide 50-year-old camphor forest.

The interior design features high ceilings with large glass windows, bringing more natural light into the reading rooms.
