A friendly, helpful staff makes this a great place to spend a quiet morning or afternoon. Great computer room with assistance and a nice area for the kids, teens. Extensive DVD collection, incredible author's series. A favorite place.

My internet went out at one and had to use the computers at the library. Library was very clean and organized. Staff was very helpful! An ID is required to use the computers...which I like!

Sanibel Library is a must visit every time we're on the island. One of the nicest libraries I've been to.

We stopped here for a few minutes to print out our return flight boarding passes. The staff was very pleasant and helpful even though they were about to close. It cost us .60 cents instead of the $30 the airline wanted to charge to print our passes.

Sanibel is such a small town but it has a beautiful large sunny library that is completely unexpected. It is probably one of the nicest I have ever been to. Everything from books, DVDs, games, puzzles, computers are available. A great place to visit!

What a good place to stop! I always check their used-book room and enjoy the rockers on the screened-in balcony.

Discovered this gem on my last visit. After several rainy days I was looking for a new indoor activity. The staff is welcoming and helpful to island visitors. There are delightful reading porches facing the back wooded lots with screens, overhead fans and rocking chairs. Peaceful way to spend an afternoon rainy or not!

On a rainy day, this is a nice place to stop! It is in an attractive setting and there are computers you may use, as well as books and activities to browse.
