What a library for any size community, never mind one as small as Sanibel. With artworks, reading areas, vhs and dvd hire, internet access along with - it goes without saying - a vast selection of books all housed in a pleasant, light and airy building this really is a library Sanibel can be proud of.

You'll think I don't get out much, huh? But really. It's beautiful from the architecture to the huge "Large Print" collection :) I got a card so I could borrow audio books online. There was a small fee for non-residents of Sanibel. Worth it. I visit often.

This library has whatever we need. The staff is wonderful. The bookshelves are chock full of both familiar and new items. The showpieces of art are such that you must stop and look and then look again. Coming to the Sanibel Library during our multi week stays on Sanibel is a requirement for a happy visit.

This is a wonderful library with so many inviting places to sit and read, do a puzzle, whatever. You will love the shell and art exhibits as well as the many magazines and newspapers ready to read.
