Home to a lot of books. Take your pick – interesting, boring, academic and non-academic – you are bound to find all in this building. Do not let its outward appearance fool you, because its inner design can sometimes be complex to newcomers. The library was built to fit the terrain both front and back, and the beauty of the building is better appreciated from the inside. So if you are a student (or not), do not be scared to go in and feast your eyes.
