The new library location on the outside of the main downtown area offers more easy, convenient parking. It is a bright and welcoming space, and we were delighted to discover that they had coffee and donuts on the Saturday morning that we visited.

The new library is now next the Elementary School on the Edgartown West Tilbury Road across from Edgartown Hardware. The old Library will become a visitor center and museum at some point in the future.
