Open for Students 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
The Nakajima Library is always open to students and never “sleeps.” We want to provide a place where you can always study.
The university has incorporated this idea into the library. The library is a composite structure of timber and reinforced concrete with a unique semicircular design not seen anywhere else in the country: the theme is the “Book Coliseum.” Akita prefecture’s native cedar has been widely used in the construction. The traditionally crafted umbrella-shaped roof has a striking presence, giving users a sense of tranquility and calm.
