To be honest, I went there w doubt in mind - a library, for a tourist site? Now we are seriously considering spending part of our retirement here :) if you do not believe, check it out yourself

This library is wonderful. It is fully equipped.....books, magazines, DVDs, a computer room, great children's dept. to only mention a few amenities ! There is a marvelous shell collection to help you identify what you have found. I would like to pick it up and bring it home with me!

great selection of books and DVDs and great access to things you don't bring with you on vacation - e.g. scanner.

We stop in every time we're on the Island to pick up a used paperback to read on the beach and to view the beautiful shell collection in the lobby.

This was probably one of the more interesting libraries we've been in, with shell displays, puzzles, games, a computer room filled with laptops, a lot to do on a rainy day or just to get out of the heat.

It is more than a library-they have a children's section, computer room w/printer, many areas to sit quietly and read, great adult section, shell display, friendly, helpful staff and all housed in a beautiful building.

We LOVE Sanibel Library. The kids section is complete with classics along with many fun books for the kids to read. They have special events there for kids as well - we read to a bearded collie one afternoon. My daughter loved it! Also, if you need a place to work on the island, it has nice quiet rooms with...

Wonderful library but they do not have Playaway!! It's the best format to listen to an audiobook on the beach, walking the beach, riding a bike or just sitting by the ocean. They do have lovely little areas within the library and a very quiet porch to read and enjoy a great story!
