Wonderful library with a big surprise

Really a lovely library for a small vacation town. Great break from the sun, good for all ages of kids. The scale model boat in the interior is lovely.

This is a very special library, with three floors of books, videos, etc. There is also a very good book sale at the entrance. A good place to spend time if you want to get away from the crowds in P-town.

When traveling through town, this is a worthwhile place to visit. The library is quiet and filled with books and computers. A must see is on the second floor! There is a reconstructed sailboat that is HUGE. Kids and adults will marvel upon seeing this boat. Don't miss out on this attraction!

Wandered in to see the Rose Dorethea replica boat in the Library Well worth a visit, the video is very informative, takes about 15mins but worthwhile watching. A beautiful boat lots of work taken to put this together

While strolling through P-town we stopped in to see what was on the second floor. Our innkeepers said it was a must see. Worth the visit!

My friend recommended we take in the library. It has something for everyone, lots of books and computers that people can use. Very friendly staff. The piece of resistance is the huge sailing vessel on the second floor with the masts into the third floor. It was built by Capt.Flyer Santos and is quite the work of art. There are... More

i had to stop off here today to print something out for work. They recently rehabbed the place and the building is spectacular. They named one of the wings after Marc Jacobs the clothing designer, and I think he may have paid for the rehab. The building is now an historic landmark. I encourage you to Goode it and read...
