  • Enjoyed our visit to the Provincetown library. The reading room, wonderful charm and unbelievable sail boat that was erected inside, made our visit worthwhile.

  • This is one of my favorite places, and certainly my favorite library. It is housed in a gorgeous building and boasts a 1/2-scale replica of the Rose Dorothea schooner. There are also fantastic views of the bay from the upper floors.
  • Such a lovely place, this month they have a movie night one Wednesday is small gathering of people of the city and today the movie was Wild one. Love to watch how the industry of cinema is make so much evolution… but watch the old movie is just fabulous.
