You've definitely seen pictures from the Tainjin Binhai Library floating all over social media. Steps on steps, and shelves on shelves of books and nothing but books! You're literally surronded by books! Nicknamed as "The Eye", Tainjin Binhai Library's round-like architecture is is meant to stimulate the space for the use of reading, walking and even conversing. In the middle of the library-- completing the eye theme-- is a giant globe that serves as an auditorium inside. The building is 5 levels big, and though (sadly) not every book in this "book mountain" is real, there are other areas beyond the main atrium for you to locate the book of your choice.
