I found the library due to a need to check email. It is a GEM! Large and relatively new. It is accessible by elevator or stairs, has covered shady parking, and private screened "reading porches" with comfy rockers overlooking a nature preserve.

You want to visit the Sanibel library. Immediately you are greeted by one of the most amazing shell collections not only on the island but in all Florida. I have never been unable to find a book I was seeking. The computer resources are A1 and the staff are helpful and friendly. Good place for everyone to visit. Great kids... More

We stop every year and absolutely love the very detailed shell display upon entering the building. The place is clean, relaxing, and we especially love the back deck where you can grab a book, sit on a rocking chair, and listen to nature on the back bay.

Not only is this a great library for a tiny island, but it has an amazing Farmer's Market on Sundays in season.

Of course it's a great place to check out a nice selection of reading materials, audio or videos, etc. for residents or visitors alike but more than that its a great place to meet locals or visitors in a wonderful building that provides a retreat like atmosphere. On top of that, the staff is top notch!
