If you are collecting shells the library has a nice display just inside the main door where they have all the different shells categorized and arranged.

“We took a break from the heat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We like to go to libraries on vacations if we can. Just a fun hobby to see how information and pleasure reading used to be distributed prior to nooks, kindles, and the internet. This is a charming library with a very good selection. A nice break from the heat of the beach.

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

Bit weird, right, to go to a library when on holiday but this place has all the latest books, plenty of DVDs, magazines and CDs so now I just pay my $10 annual membership everytime we go to Sanibel and save a stash of cash on airport book purchases! The staff are sooo nice and helpful, the place is lovely and cool and relaxing, there's free internet should you need it - well worth supporting!
