  • a structure that admirably lacks a high rise propensity, it is essentially circular, it occupies a position in that verdant part of the town and it breathes at various levels. Visit it unhesitatingly.

  • Such an amazing place !!! It has an incredible geometrical architecture, it's light colors are just perfect, it's surrounding areas with the trees and grass make a good view, it's gardens and fountains looks pretty cool. I am really amazed by this place and I think I will come more often from now on.
  • Should have a better illumination inside the library. It is gloomy and kinda dark when clock reaches 5:30pm. Nowadays there are less activities than before. Most of the specialised rooms are closed and not open to general public! On Saturdays it should be full of activities..!
