Sanibel Public Library is nearing completion of "Your Library Reimagined" project. All Library services may not be available at all times during the remodel, (like meeting rooms, the shell display). 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.

We love the Sanibel library! The media specialists are so helpful and great at locating all of my daughters must have beach reads. We love borrowing family games, puzzles and videos to watch on stormy days/nights. Worth a trip!
