With reason this library wins statewide awards. It is a great library, but so much more, with events, meetings, concerts, readings. It is the center of this community.

Everyone who works here is very helpful. It has a decent selection and is usually fairly busy when they are open. I loved their local history book section, and local ecology.

This is one special library with an incredible ambiance given that it is in an old candle factory. It is a gathering place for all who love Wellfleet. The staff is knowledgeable and kind, interested in what you are doing. There are frequent concerts, lectures art exhibits, French classes, yoga classes. Creative children's room with plenty of readings and events... More

NO parking available....poorly planned. The library itself is beautiful and it's very helpful in that it offers WiFi to vacationers. Much needed service...wish more places in Wellfleet would offer WiFi.

The staff is fantastic. Very helpful, personable, knowledgeable. It is truly the jewel of Wellfleet. During the summer you never know who you might be standing next to...a Pulitzer prize recipient, a PBS documentary film maker, any number of highly published authors, a local shellfisherman that shoots film, or any one of the colorful locals. Everyone is there!

Great library. Free wifi even when closed. GREAT kids and YA sections. Friendly and easy to deal with staff. Get a temporary card for your time there by showing your house rental papers. Jigsaw puzzles, DVDs, breat books--all you need for those rainy days!

I used to live in Wellfleet and spent mass time at this library. If you can't find parking, there is another lot up the hill behind it. While in the summer you might find it crowded with computer users, you'll find the selection of books and such to be pretty good. The staff even offered me discount coupons for area... More
