What I'd like to talk about is the Capital Library. It is located in the Dongcheng District in Beijing. It is quieter than the National Library and I like the atmosphere there.The place is now a library for history books and any books published in China are there, but it also has interesting history itself.
It is located in the same area as the old Guo Zi Jian,or in English you might call it the Imperial College. The building was built in traditional Qing architectural style,because it was last rebuilt during that time. The roof is quite steep. Bi Yong Hall was the place where imperial exams were held, and it has two layered roofs with a curved at each comer,just like the buildings at the Summer Palace. It is red and has quite a few wooden pillars holding it up on all sides.
I like the library because it seems to store the soul of our country. In the 1950s,it stopped being an educational place and became an all-purpose library.
