Great collection. Mostly cheerful staff. Beautiful, spacious atmosphere. Staying abreast of changing library tech. A wonderful demonstration of the priorities of this affluent island community.

Beautiful, light airy facility. There are beautiful shell displays. A very nice place to spend a rainy afternoon on beautiful Sanibel.

Twoinmaine are both "library people" and we really liked the Sanibel Public Library. Tucked in near the Town Office just off Periwinkle Way, and home to the Sunday farmer's markets, this library offers books, movies, computer/internet access, and a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We renew every year when we visit, and you should, too.

What a wonderful building and super collection! Great for the community and good for visitors as well. If you need Internet access just bring a photo ID and you will be allowed to use a computer.

For 12 years we've been Visitor members of this library. It's one of the best. From when the kids were tiny, we'd go for story time with Miss Barb. Now we go to get books, magazines, movies, and just to hang out because it's a really cool space.

This is a community and tourist friendly library with a great collection including a wide range of packaged resources of books, tapes etc for children. The Library is also a very nice architectural statement for the island. By the way they have a great app and web site for borrowing

We are so happy we went to the library on Sanibel and wished we would have gone sooner. Bike over, you won't be sorry. Excellent and lots of useful Sanibel information, too. Our teen girls liked working on the jigsaw puzzles. We bought a couple of used books, too. Great movie selection.

This lovely library is quite large for a community this size! Many comfy chairs are located near windows overlooking greenery, and it has an outdoor reading porch, too! The children's area includes a spot to sit and read, computers with educational games, and lots of books, both print and audio. Adults will find a large computer area, lots of reading... More

When I was unable to source e-mail in my rental,the Chamber of Commerce sent me to the library and they filled the void for no charge. You can make copies for ten cents a page. The building is attractive and they have an extensive collection of books. Never expected such quality on Sanibel. Thank you every one at the library.

Join for $10 annually, renew when you return next year! Helpful, an awesome checkout you can do yourself, and lots to read and borrow. Don't buy something to read when you come down! For the price of a paperback you can take out lots ! Love this place!
