We've been coming here every summer for the last 10 years and one of my treats is to drop by and pick up some books to read at the beach. It's a small library but it has a reading roomhave a decent selection of new books. I've had books put on reserve from throughout the Massachusetts library system.

I spent my last summer as a j1 student in Martha`s Vineyard and I wasn`t able to bring all the medical books that I wanted from back home, but I was able to use the Vineyard Haven Library when I needed something which was really nice.

We visited this library several times during our vacation on Martha's Vineyard. Gorgeous library within easy walking distance of downtown. Great selection of books, magazines and comfortable seating. We rented a house with very limited access to the internet. WIFI at the library is fast and reliable. Nice staff. If you are working there on Friday afternoons during the summer,... More

This small town library has everything you need. A large collection of books and even more you can order from their system. Large selection of magazines and a nice reading area. Helpful staff and plenty of computers. If you are around for awhile you can even enjoy one of their adult or children's programs.

For a tourist destination, you don't necessarily expect a full library with professional staff. This is a lovely spot with plenty of books for adults, kids, and teens. Computers as well as work tables are available. I help shelve books when I visit as my resident friend is a volunteer - love libraries, even on vacation!

The VH Library is very nice! It's a great size and there's lots of places to sit and read or just relax and enjoy some quiet. Very fun, especially on a rainy day.
