“I love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

What a wonderful place. There are loads of books that I want/need to read and they are there. The staff couldn't be nicer and the ambience is very relaxing. I could spend hours there

“One of the most remarkable venues you can experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

well beyond a library, this historic building is not only in the center of town literally, but the heart of the town as well. Lots of exciting activities, new books and DVDs...an amazing resource for the community

“quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

A charming library with a vast array of books. A nice stop in a hectic world. In to many communities the library is a forgotten entity but this one is brimming with life.

“Nantucket is lucky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

A beautiful library, with many volumes of books. I could spend hours reading there. The librarians were welcoming and the library is unique. Well worth a visit.
