check out : Explore the bookshelves along the the 480 meter trail that winds it’s way and wraps around the pyramidal book stack, which can be seen as a beacon through the library’s glass structure. The trail culminates at the peak’s reading room and cafe with panoramic views through the transparent roof. Any possible damage caused to the books by direct sunlight is offset by the expected 4 year lifespan of borrowed materials.
