“Going to this fantastic library should not be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Peaceful, well stocked and beautiful - inside you will find shell collections, a room full of fantastic books and magazines that you can buy. If you are just a temporary visitor they will issue you a library card so you can take books and videos back to the room to be read or watched.
They have music cd's, movie dvd's and internet services. Very well staffed, friendly and helpful librarians.
Books you will probably never see in most libraries- many, many local books about shells, the past lives on Sanibel and Captiva, storms, fish and a very well organized children's section.
Loved it - go there by bicycle, every year on my vacation.
