The bookstore is located inside a historical building, which is also the former site of Mobil Foreign Firm. The building has a history of nearly 100 years, particularly worthy of protection. After internal renovations, it has become a modern bookstore integrating book collection, cultural and creative activities, exhibitions, and drama playing. The bookstore houses 1.2 million copies of books in more than 5,000 varieties.
