Overview
More
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.

Extensive remodeling is being done in several stages to make the library even more accommodating. I am unsure what is involved but visit and they will tell you.

We always stop by the Sanibel Public Library to browse through their resale book nook. There are paperbacks, hard cover books, music CDs, DVDs and magazines for sale at reasonable prices. It's currently under some kind of construction, so entrance is a little difficult to...More

Sanibel Library has a robust collection of beach reads, books on Florida, mysteries, and travel books. They also have an active computer room where folks can use the internet, and print.

The library is currently being renovated, and it will return to spectacular-nous- but for now it is merely a wonderful place to browse, surf the web, and read. When sitting and playing areas are back, it's the best rainy day spot around!

Great place for so many books, DVD, puzzles and audio books. The $10/year fee is so worth it. We check out loads of stuff. Great selection of new and old. Of course, lovely views too!
