A great place to get away from the crowd on Commercial Street. Fully equipped with connections to the Internet as well a full array of current magazines and newspapers. Excellent staff who are very helpful in finding your needed resources. A good collection of books and CDs for town residents. A beautiful building that stands out in the town. Check... More

We ducked into the library to get out of the chilly wind in May. We were delighted to find a wooden ship on the second floor, comfy chairs with ocean views and quiet nooks and crannies for resting.

Do you know of another library that has a full-sized wooden ship on its second floor? In addition to the history you will absorb by visiting the P'town Library, you'll also get a chance to hang with the locals and see the cool ship!

So few people in town go in to see the boat that was built inside the library, upstairs. An amazing piece of work.

My husband and other family members walked inside not knowing what to expect. Up to the top floor and there was a huge sail boat which was built inside the building many years ago. Truly amazing. We sere so glad we decided to drop in and explore. The building itself is very pretty.

There is large replica of a sailing ship on the top floor. Apparently it was too larger to move when they moved the museum from this building. Top floor also has a nice view to the harbor and there are clean restrooms. Definitely worth the price of admission which is free.

I loved the huge whaling boat inside the building and enjoyed the books about the area flora, fauna and topography. We spent a very pleasant hour or so here.

I am embarrassed to admit how long it has been since I was in a library. With the Internet, everything is at my finger tips. I decided to check out the newly remodeled space, though it has been done for about two years. It is magnificent! It is an incredibly thought out blend of modern, and the rich history of... More

They have a large sailboat on the upper level. It was really cool. Probably the cleanest library I've ever been in.

If you on't think you should visit a library on vacation, you should see this newly made over library. Not only is it beautiful, it a living monument to what a library should be, quite, peaceful and full of magnificent books and all sorts of other wonderful things to see. You should check this out because in the not so... More
