The Oak Bluffs library is a gem just a short walk from the center of town. The library offers up to date computer access, a huge video library, a lovely children's section and frequent library based activities. The staff is friendly and experienced in accessing library resources.

Hands down, by the time spent, this was our favorite attraction. We spent more time here than on the beach with our three year old. The library staff was friendly, they had daily family friendly activities and there were even private conference rooms for those of us who work on vacation. Best value in Oaks Bluff!

Love coming to OBPL for their events, using their computers, or just cooling off with my own. Great collection in the stacks, thoughtful places for teens and children. A gem for families!

Unless the new Edgartown Library has opened, the OB library is about the biggest on the island and the best staffed. It has lots of ways to spend a down day or a rainy one from reading, magazines, story telling, and listening to music. .

We adore the OB library! We bring our 2 kids there to check out books and movies, but our favorite part is just enjoying the library as a fun destination. The space is very welcoming, accessible to all abilities and ages, and the kids section is designed expertly. There are games for all ages, creative play areas, computer stations, and... More

If it's a rainy day, or perhaps you need a break from the beach, it's enjoyable to head to the Oak Bluffs Library. There are newspapers and magazines to browse. Books and movies to check out if you have a card. It's an enjoyable little side trip with a chance to catch up on some reading. I enjoyed reading the... More
