Gem of a library!

Library has open wifi outside of it. Interesting speakers and authors visit throughout the summer. Knowledgable staff.

I love all the Cape libraries, but this one is particularly nice. Great kids area and terrific for a rainy day.

I look forward to the pleasant staff, the good books and newspapers, the free access to computers and most of all, I love to attend the lectures and book and author events when they coincide with my vacation schedule. The subjects often relate to contemporary world affairs or the latest books from authors with Wellfleet residences.

Great selection of books for your enjoyment. They have computers you can use to check your mail, as well as wifi. Staff was very helpful.

We are library people. As we live in Seattle we dearly love our Seattle Public Library. But when we're on the Cape it's Wellfleet we turn to. (Not that the Truro Public Library doesn't give it a run for the money--but Wellfleet is closer to us.) Everything a library should be. Wonderful collection and tons of events for all ages.

Love to go there when I'm on vacation to get a little "office work" done. No WiFi available where I stay near the ocean. Wish tourists could sign books out, but I understand.

A lot of summer folks go here to connect to the internet if their cottages don't have access. But what I love about this little library is their children's collection: really a great find for kids to roam around, especially if it's hot and you are tired of the beach. Staff here is superb.

So, this is not the New York Public Library, but get over it - it's Wellfleet. This library has rescued us, esp. our kids, on many a rainy day in Wellfleet and I love them for it!

Love this place! Even if you're just a visitor, you'll find yourself going back again & again. They have something for everyone. Super selection of videos & books, super friendly librarians and interesting sounding events. There was a book sale going on when we last visited. My husband was able to pick up some newer books he'd had on his... More

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.
