“Awesome place to read and relax”

This is one of the most pleasant, esthetic, and well stock small city or town library I have ever been in. Everybody loves it and they welcome tourists.

“Beautiful library, great selection. $10 visitor card”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is a big, beautiful library in a quiet area. You go past a shell collection and go up the stairs or elevator to the 2nd floor and sign up for a Visitor's Card. Just $10 for a whole year. Why rent when you can check out 10 dvds at a time as many times as you like? Go to the Redbox at Jerry's if you are desperate for a New Release. You can check out 30 items maximum at a time. The book collection is enormous. There is a small room where you can buy sale books. There is free internet access. Self check-out is easy. What I found most interesting was a large collection of Sanibel history dvds - wish I had time to rent them all. Wish I could remain on Sanibel for the entire year the library card covers!

“Extraordinary library”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is the best library I have ever been to. They have a large room of computers, every newspaper imaginable, as well as magazines, tapes, cd's, videos, dvd's and a most extensive library.
Everything is very easy to find with cheerful employees and volunteers on hand to assist you if you need help. The place is bright, clean, friendly, comfortable, extensive inventory of books and parking is never a problem. Try it, you'll love it!
