The Sanibel Historical Village will be taking part in the reimagined Luminary Week December 4-11. The Village will be decorated for the holidays, and the museum store will be offering a 10 percent discount on its wide variety of books.

“We’re so happy that Luminary will still take place during this difficult year,” said Executive Director Emilie Alfino. “Our village is especially charming this time of year decked out in its holiday finest. We hope people will come and feel the excitement of the season and have the added bonus of 10 percent off our books.”

The Village carries a wide variety of books, most featuring the history of Sanibel. Some of the titles include Sanibel’s Story, Art Calusa, My 92 Years on Sanibel (Francis Bailey), Postcard History Series: Sanibel and Captiva Islands, The Story of Sanibel Island, The Sea Shell Islands, and many from the Images of America series: Ding Darling, Pine Island, Naples, Florida Lighthouses, and more.

The historical village is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. The village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $10 for adults 18 and older; those under 18 and members are free. Due to the COVID pandemic, docent-guided tours are available by reservation only for groups of no less than six and no more than 10 and are based upon docent availability. At this time, the Gift Shop is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. due to staffing difficulties brought on by COVID. Admission for entrance to go only to the Gift Shop is free. There is handicap access at the Village. For information, call 472-4648 during business hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
