If you enjoy expericing old buildings, this is a great stop. My husband and I spent about 30-45 minutes walking around. Make sure to check out upstairs with the beautiful replica ship. Bathrooms are nice, clean and easy access for the public.

People of Provincetown are secretly excited to have you visit the 2nd floor of the Library. I did. It was worthwhile. But... it's a secret. Just go!

Of course, you'll see the boat on the second floor - fun. There's also nice artwork (a guide is available at desk), and great view from 3rd floor.

Beautifully restored outside and I won't ruin the surprise inside, great for kids of all ages. Centrally located on Commercial Street, less than a block from the Ocean.

During a bad weather day, I spent an hour or two here, enjoying the architecture and the local history books. The librarians were so friendly and helpful.

Lots of space with ample computer's available. Different Jandra for everyone and really enjoyed the fact local newspapers and my favorite - The New York Times were available to read in a very comfy, well lit area.

Not many people know about what's up stairs in the library. It was our first visit to the library and we're pleasantly surprised when we went up stairs to see a full ship. Something interesting to see in Provincetown
