“Don't miss this special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a small town library that offers a fine a service as the institutions in any major city that I have visited plus it has a friendly feeling. The library staff are helpful, delightful, highly energetic and fun loving.

As part of a collaborative of a number of smaller libraries, it is able to give individual attention while having access to a wide variety of resources.

The physical facility is so comfortable and welcoming that I find it a wonderful alternative to staying at home or finding a coffee shop for killing time.

The high tech electronic era has only enhanced this library's activities.

Don't miss a chance to visit it when you are around the Oak Bluffs area.

The library building is very well designed, and has very supportive staff. Good collection that is enhanced via the CLAMS inter library loan program . Good internet connection and computer access. If it is raining , certainly the place to go, especially with children !

“Great source for reading and wifi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Beautiful library located in a quiet residential area just a short walk (maybe six blocks or so) from the heart of Oak Bluffs' business area. Great place to use a computer if you do not have one of your own with you, or a printer for that matter. Even if the library is closed, the wifi is still accessible. Quaint rocking chairs adorn the front porch providing a good spot to sit and access the wifi. Staff is always so pleasant and helpful. The building is probably less than ten years old, thus it has modern features, yet it retains a New England style of architecture to fit well with the neighborhood.
