The library has 7 floors and can hold 3 million volumes of books and over 5,000 seats. The concepts of energy-saving and natural light illumination are reflected in the structural design. The overall pattern (upper layer, lower layer, east, west, north, and south) takes the form of a garden, thereby enhancing ventilation, sectional temperature control, and energy efficiency. It is a green building.
