The Brewster Ladies Library got its start in the mid-1800s on the donations of books and $1 each from a few young women on the Cape. From there, it's grown to a beautiful, large old building.

If you love libraries, books, history, architecture, you will love this place. Really open and pretty inside. Lots of cool old photos on the walls - I especially liked the Helen Keller exhibit by the entrance.

With their great lending policy, free computer time, good collections, and helpful staff, this library can help you find the perfect summer read. Don't miss the sale room downstairs--for just a few dollars you can take away a book or DVD for the road (or plane)!

If you like architecture, stop and see this building--its well maintained, and the later additions are sympathetic.
