Shanghai Pudong Library Photos

The first post in 2011 – good year. Waked up early, shining, cold outside, but warm inside. Sitting in my reading room, thinking about what to share today as the first post.

I posted a blog about the open of Pudong Library, but without photos. Now, I got some.

It is a huge interior space with several meters high – two floors combined. There are huge stairs inside the room. The room is actually the entire building – the big square surrounding the bookshelf in the middle, with windows on four directions and tables around it. It takes quite a while to walk around the whole room.

Refer to my previous open blog to find out location. You should go there to check out the modern architecture, although I don’t enjoy reading there – I even doubt the value of a library in the current digital world, just as I doubt the value of Expo.

P.S. Going to Hangzhou today with Yifan and Wendy for the New Year party of Wendy’s Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business class. The first party in 2011.


  1. It turns out that there exist such an enormous library in Shanghai

  2. I have to say, using Windows Explorer to make the resolution smaller of an iPhone camera taken picture is a bad idea.

  3. That is an impressive library.

  4. I went there yesterday and became a member….nice place to everything: reading,learning, and also enjoy a soma food at the basement….
