“Provincetown's backbone”

Provincetown Library

Beautiful newly restored building and one of town's architectural treasures. Impeccably run and the core of most of town's off season cultural venues. Climb to the last floors to enjoy the beautiful view of the bay and the Rose Dorothea Schooner. Although it is half scale model replica it plunges you into a piece of the town's glorious maritime heritage.

The surprise , go all the way up and look. It is a nice place to hang out.. We loved that we could get out of the heat on a very hot day and just have a place to go and read.

Wandering around town on vacation you don't always think of going to the library, but this is well worth the visit, since it is right downtown anyway. A friend mentioned we should see it because of the model ship they had. The model ship turned out to be a half-size fishing ship that seems to have grown inside the library like a baby chick bursting out of an egg. Additionally there is some interesting are hanging in the space.

Go upstairs and check out the sailboat! Clean restrooms and water fountains in the library as well. Great place to duck into in order to escap the crowds on the street.

Another place to visit when you can't go to the beach. Some rare finds in the stacks. Worth the trip if you can find a place to park.
