“…I can’t imagine the painter of the future living in small restaurants, setting to work with a lot of false teeth, and going to the Zouaves’ brothels as I do. But I’m sure I’m right to think that I will come in a later generation, and it is up to us to do all we can to encourage it, without question or complaint. (Vincent Willem van Gogh)”

I introduced Useful information in Berlin or similar in Germany about library service in Berlin few weeks ago. It seems like many people are interested in it so I wanted to tell you I have an another secret place. Maybe many people would know, especially students.

Yes, it is Universitätsbibliothek der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (University Library of Humboldt). It’s open to public but you may need a library card. If you’re over 16 and not a Humbolt student, just bring your Id card/passport and registration certification and apply it with no charge.

Very impressive and well-collected library. It’s good for reading. It’s open from 8:00 to 24:00 on weekdays. However, on weekend it’s 10:00 – 22:00. Good, right? If you like to turning the pages, touch the papers or smell the old book, you’ll like here. Come and find a place to enjoy here.

很漂亮的一間大學圖書館,進出不需任何費用,申請圖書證也不用錢,雖然專業書籍居多,不過很適合在裡面唸書,除了位置多,且很有設計感,禮拜一到禮拜五開到晚上12點,禮拜六和禮拜天也有開到下午六點,我只需搭兩站Tram和兩站捷運就可到,怎麼可以不去卡位呢?說來慚愧,在陽明的時候,實驗室明明就在圖資大樓,沒想到我只去過圖書館一次,那一次還是因為辦離校手續而進去,但僅止於門口,因為期刊或在實驗室也可以下載啊(羞愧逃跑)!但今天在圖書館看到梵谷的這段話,立馬回家,完成欠人的德文版吶喊。
