The building architecture is unique, just like a book that is open and ready to read. My children have a good time here since it has multimedia edutainment and a good collection of books of course

This building captures the eye immediately from afar as it's shaped like an open book. It's a sight to behold. Inside the building, it's a typical library building, nothing much for the person who cannot read Bahasa Indonesia.

The building is big and prettily designed. I think it is the best library building in Indonesia. However some rooms were not occupied accordingly. Parking areas were narrow, some cars were parked on the left side of the roads near the building.
