Provincetown Library Reviews
What a beautiful building! Check out the ship on the second floor - oh, and there's a fantastic view of the harbor too. A/C and free wifi - what is not to love! Be well, Lipstick Warriors more »

I love the small-town atmosphere here, and am always amazed by the huge boat upstairs. The first time I was here I accidentally meandered into a cooking demonstration and learned how to saute with fresh scallops!
One of the world's best libraries!!
