“A great surprise.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

A renovated church, beautifully done and plenty of art work on the walls and a very big surprise on the top floor - won't tell, you will need to see for yourself!!
Also, talked to librarian Andrew and he was a wealth of information. Thank you Andrew!!!

“Great on a rainy day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Kids love it here. Big model ship upstairs. Internet, bathrooms, good selection of titles. When it's really hot out, escape to the cool. When it's wet, get dry and warm here.

“A lot more than books---a microcosm of the place....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Provincetown, is a world unto itself--way on the tip of Cape Cod. It is a town of anomalies-the frenetic scene on Commercial Street, the solitude of the Dunes, an Arts Community founded where the Pilgrims actually landed first, Gay Mecca and home to Portuguese fishermen. The library is tribute to all of the above mentioned. It is a perfect place to retreat on a drizzly day or when you want a place to regroup. Great art book and magazine collection, internet access, exhibition space, a place to absorb the history and sociological mixture of this amazing spot on the map. A lot of care has been taken when the library was remolded and modernized. A must for anyone who likes to view a new place from a local's perspective.
