Sanibel Public Library

Attraction details
Fee: No
Owner description: Sanibel Public Library is undergoing "Your Library Reimagined" project. Both the beauty and the quality of the Library structure are outstanding, but it is time to replace much of the infrastructure. HVAC, fire suppression, plumbing, lighting, technology, and flooring are being upgraded for greater efficiency; sustainable design features are included with the upgrade. All Library services (like the shell exhibit, for example) may not be available at all times during the 2017 remodel. Updates to the project will be posted on Facebook and Twitter. Please call the Library before your visit if you have questions. The Library provides access to high speed WiFi, as well as printing services—no Library card required. If you do not live in Lee County Florida, you may purchase a Visitor Card for $10, good for one year. Use the Visitor Card to check out books, movies, cooking kits, museum passes, music, magazines, and more—up to 30 items at one time. Also use your Visitor Card to download eBooks, magazines and audiobooks, and stream movies and music through the Library's eShelf collection. Sanibel Public Library hosts programs for kids of all ages throughout the year including storytimes, makerspace events, and special guests. Events are listed at the Library's online calendar.

“Great Library”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

One of the nicest libraries ever. Don't bring your books and movies on your trip as they have it all. Old and newer DVD movies. Great books about shells and local items. They even lend/give you jigsaw puzzles for a rainy day.

Excellent computers available to guests to the Island at no charge. They also always have books for sale at very discounted prices. We brought home a big bag full!

“One of the best small town libraries anywhere”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Ambiance, selection, staff ... all perfect. We are residents, but they treat visitors graciously and provide all the same services.

“Great library”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

A very nice and well equipped library. Several years ago we got a Visitor's Card during our stay and we renew it each year ($10). They have activities for kids and a large bank of computers for those that have a need. Our children enjoy the Juvenile Section and check out books a couple of times during our week long stay. It is certainly worth a look while on the Island.
