“Our first stop on every visit to Sanibel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This library is simply superb. The library appeals to all ages and tastes. Our little grandchildren enjoyed their section of the library and the wide selection of books, puzzle and toys. The free wifi makes the internet available whenever it is needed. The mystery section is vast as is the cooking section. New books are always being shown and the staff is always available to help check out, save a book or answer a question. Parking is easy, returns are easy and the atmosphere is most welcoming. How fortunate we are on Sanibel to have this award-winning library.

“Easy and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Staff was friendly, $10 gets you a local library card, and for those staying a week or more, the library definitely offers a great opportunity to check out a book for the beach or an evening movie. Highly recommended.

“what a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

If you have grown up using libraries, you will find the Sanibel Library is extraordinary. We often go to relax, choose a book off the shelf, and spend time reading in the rockers on the upper deck. It is spacious, beautifully designed, and staffed by friendly folks. For those of us who continue to love the printed page instead of reading a Kindle or Nook, it's a great place to visit.

“Huge library-small island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

It is hard to beleive that such a small venue can have such a large, complete library. Very automated, easy to access whatever you are looking for - couldn't be better.
