Wellfleet Library has a great program of music and art events. It's also a nice, and comfortable, friendly library to hang out, read, and relax.

When you dig deeper, you'll fine "off-track," i.e., progressive collection of writers, magazines. Then there's the series of talks and events all year-round to stimulate our thinking, catalyse interesting conversations, and...More

I wish my local library was as well stocked as this one! Computers, internet, kids toys/dress-up chest. The Wellfleet library is a great resource.

Whenever I'm spending a significant amount of time in Wellfleet, the second thing I do, after getting a lobster roll at PJ's, is get a library card at the Wellfleet Library. It's right in town and has a great selection of books, CDs, and DVDs....More

This is the place to rent movies, find good beach reads, entertain your kids, go onto the computer, if you haven't brought one....Hours are limited, but it's what a library should be for the community.
