Singapore’s Bishan Library


My quest for interesting libraries sometimes takes me to the furthest regions of a city. In Taipei, I have to ride the MRT for nearly an hours form the southern neighborhood of Xindian to the northern district of Beitou to see the Xin Beitou Library, and boy is it worth it.
