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.

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!
