“Quiet retreat and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

As a Massachusetts resident, sign up for a temporary library card and grab a book or DVD for later at the hotel.

“Secret Garden - Paradise for us!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The kids ran out of books to read (huh?) on vacation... we were able to get our own CLAMS card and check out books for them, cookbooks, for me, NYT crossword puzzle copies every day... The children's resource librarian stands head and shoulders above any other we've met: her patience with the wiffle waffle pre-teens was honorary... we will be back again next year....

“Free wifi, free concerts, nice lawn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We enjoyed a free jazz concert on the front lawn on a Thursday night. It's nice to have the wifi available there, and it's conveniently located in town. Nonresidents can get a temporary card for $10, which might be worth it if you're staying for a while or if you will check out a lot of materials while you're there.

“A quiet spot in hectic (summer) Edgartown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Cool and comfortable, go in and read up-to date papers in comfortable chairs . Free Wi-fi and free 15min on their computers if you don't have a smart phone I guess most people do these days but convenient for oversees visitors. Very helpful staff who are used to all nationalities.
Off season they screen some great movies ( Downton Abbey) WITH refreshments!!!

“Concert at the Library”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Walking back to the hotel we discovered a concert was about to begin so we sat down and enjoyed the music of a local musician.

Very enjoyable.
