I just stopped in to kill some time while waiting for a friend. The first thing you see are several comfy reading areas complete with leather arm chairs, and a nice view of Main Street. I wish I had more time to explore its other amenities.

The Wellfleet Library is a great place to relax after a morning or afternoon at the beach, a rain-filled interruption of sunny days or a hectic tour of local sites. It is staffed by professional and welcoming women who are in touch with your needs whether it is a search for a popular book, the latest magazine or newspaper or... More

You sense the community when you enter the bright sunny space....in addition to what you'd normally expect to find, books, books, more books, you'll find a large children's room, numerous computer stations, welcoming seating/browsing areas, a large white board covered with announcements of activities/lectures/recitals/art shows/classes, etc., offered in the attached community room. The librarians are always friendly and welcoming. No... More

Many accommodation in Wellfleet does nog have wifi. The library has. Even when the library is closed you can reach free wifi when you are standing on the parking lot

I recently moved into Wellfleet and heard that the library was a good resource. It really is - besides the local collection, the library has access to collections in libraries across Cape Cod via a sharing program, hence the available resources are much larger and more diverse than the library itself. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, and they... More

It's a nice, clean library with plenty of comfortable chairs and work tables. It's great if you need to get some work done, or if your kids need to. I took my daughter so she would have a quiet place to get a little homework done.

I love all the Cape libraries, but this one is particularly nice. Great kids area and terrific for a rainy day.
