“Must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Hey, how often do you get to see a sailing ship inside a library? Get along to here and take it all in. Great views of the harbour from upstairs and of course that sailing ship. Purchased some great books at their book sale as well.

“Great small town library”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

and welcoming to the hordes of visitors to Ptown in the height of the summer season. They make their computers (and internet access) available for free to tourists wanting to check their emails. Most libraries will do that, but most are not confronted with the same seasonal influx as Provincetown.

“Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The library has a hidden gem ... check out the second level... you will not be let down! Great little slice of quiet in the middle of the bustle.

“Don't miss the boat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Built inside this charming library is a half-size model of an old (big) sailing vessel. We thought we were in the wrong place when we entered the library, but we were directed to the second floor to view the ship. Walk all the way around, then climb another set of steps to the upper level to view the deck from above. This is also a great place to take kids on a rainy day. There's a small play area and of course all kinds of fun books to read.
