“What an amazing library”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

Even though they have a limited selection of books, they have a decent ship replica and a wonderful view of the ocean. The pictures and the stories on the walls inform visitors about the process of building the ship inside the library.

“Check out the boat!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The library in Ptown has a fabulous art book collection. But besides that - there's a boat the library has been built around. The boat is a model of the Rose Dorothea - info: http://www.provincetown-ma.gov/index.aspx?NID=690 And it's really amazing to find a huge ship in the middle of a library!

“The best library ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

There is no other library comparable to the Provincetown Library. Inside is a 3/4 size full replica of a sailing ship. The view of Provincetown Harbor is beyond belief! And this is the place to be in December when the lights are turned on the monument for the night. Plus the staff is helpful and friendly.

“Beautiful Library”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Used the library for computer access. What a beautiful building. The staff was very helpful in giving instructions for accessing their computers. If you are in P Town do stop by the library and have a look.
