Lovely new building and free paperback books
Aug 2021
A comfortable library which stocks used paperback books near the entry, available for free (a small contribution is suggested but not required. Convenient if you run out of reading material on a rainy day.

JR says West Tisbury Library Is Awesome
Jul 2019 • Friends
Visited West Tisbury Library today. Found it to be a respite from the hectic pace that overtakes Martha’s Vineyard in the summer months. The library offers a place for people of every age to find peace and quiet. Whether looking for a spot for kids to explore their curiosity or adults to discover something new and meaningful, the library is a spot that affords an opportunity for people of all ages to relax and expand their minds. Innovative in so many ways, the library serves as a model of excellence in environmental concerns. It offers both residents and visitors a place to call home, to cuddle up with a good book or to surf the internet for an answer. Please make a visit while on Martha’s Vineyard. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Solar eclipse seminar
Aug 2017
The west tisbury library held a solar eclipse seminar. We gathered inside to watch the eclipse livestreamed from the space shuttle and Kentucky. And we were able to join a group of other people who were watching with glasses outside. There was an expert who led the discussion by providing us with background information and answering any questions we had. It was a monumental experience. Thank you to the staff at west tisbury library.

Welcoming space

Excellent local library. We stepped in to make use of wifi and were struck you the bright open feel and comfort of the main reading room. Great collection of unusual cookbooks lined the shelves near where we sat. (Also they have terrific - clean! - composting toilets and offer special parking to people driving hybrids and electric cars.)

What a PUblic Library Should Be---This library has it all, even a sense of humor
Oct 2015
What a spectacular collection, gorgeous reading spaces including an outdoor deck, great children's room, and a fantastic collection of DVD's. The librarians are incredibly helpful, spirited and you don't have to half-talk or whisper. A delightful library with an incredible speaker's series, just opposite Alley's General Store. Lovely gardens, local art and they can source titles from all over the Cape and Islands.

Beautiful Facility; Friendly, Enthusiastic Staff
Sep 2015 • Family
The West Tisbury Library has been recently renovated and is beautiful. Restrooms are handicapped accessible and built on sustainable practices for waste management. We visited the Children's section, a bright airy room, with kids reading comfortably in bean bag chairs. Also has a meeting room with adjacent kitchen. We learned about the Obama Grandmother project -- very interesting! Conveniently located across from Alley's market. Open a CLAMS library account to borrow library materials.

Solid Library With A Good Location
Oct 2014 • Couples
If you are overwhelmed by the large crowds around the beaches and bus lines, this is a nice, quiet spot to stop at and collect yourself. The first thing that struck us were the named bricks leading up to the front of the library, a sign that it is a locally funded, and the colonial era architecture which reminds you of the small town nature of the island despite the large crowds. We loved the interior, crisp, clean and with a newly installed bathroom system that greatly conserves water and explains how it does so. It might sound a bit silly to list that as a thing worth mentioning, but it's always good to appreciate efforts made to conserve our environments.

As far as selection, if you are not staying at a place that has great internet (it's pretty slow outside of the Vineyard Haven/ Oak Bluffs/ Edgartown) there is a very good selection of DVD's, CD's and audio books. If you need to take a break, the reading area's are nice and the people seem genuinely interested in helping you. We did not take advantage of the movie night or some of the reading events that would have made it more of a must go to area, so I can't rate based on that. It is a solid place to visit if you want some downtime, but it is not a destination.
