Description: Built in 2006, the Beitou Branch of Taipei Public Library, made largely of timber, is Taiwan's first "green" library. It is equipped with photovoltaic cells, a rainwater-capture system and large windows that help provide light and ventilation. The green building focuses on ecology, energy saving, waste reduction and health.

The English section is impressive, and a wonderful day can be had alternating between the nearby public hot springs and the beautiful and comfortable Beitou library.

It's a quick and lovely walk from the Xinbeitou MRT, and there are signposts to point the way.

No. 251, Guāngmíng Rd.
