“Great library with a big ship inside”

Provincetown Library
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 5, 2014

This is a must stop to see this beautiful, just renovated library. There are public rest rooms, free Wi-Fi, and great views from the upstairs windows. When this was a history museum, a large model of a ship was built inside; now this space is a children's reading area.

I am a Children's Librarian from Long Island, NY and was amazed to see the beautiful ship displayed in the center of this historical building...What great history to be told and absorbed in the minds of the young!

Stopped by the library with the grandchildren to see the huge sailing ship replica on the second floor. Very interesting view to the past. Nice job in building this ship. Must stop by when in P'Town

To be blown away by the full sized schooner they built INSIDE the library. Flyer Santos, a local legend in this town, fought to keep this ship inside the library before they built it. We all thought it was crazy, but when we saw it after the renovations we were all blown away!

A good place to bring a laptop and catch some internet too. There are some windows upstairs that overlook the harbor and are the creme-de-la-creme spots if you can snag one to work on your laptop should you be stuck on vacation with some work to do!

Definitely visit the library. The building is historic and beautiful. You have heard of a ship in a bottle but have you ever heard of a ship in a library? Go to the second floor and be stunned. Quiet and relaxing. Plus free internet!
