Our Collection

The San Juan Island Library provides community access to diverse and relevant collections, information resources, and services in support of individual educational, occupational, and recreational interests. Areas receiving particular focus include instruction/how-to publications on building, gardening, small business, travel and handicrafts; cultural/educational publications on history, art, health and science; and high demand/high interest new fiction and non-fiction titles. Formats in the Library collection include films on DVD, audiobooks on CD and on Playaway, and eBooks and eAudiobooks available for digital download. The Library periodical collection is unusually strong given the Library size, due in part to specific titles being 'sponsored’ by local businesses or individuals who donate the annual subscription cost. Additionally, the Library attempts to receive, classify and make available documents published in, or relating to, San Juan County.
