Our Lending Library


Our small library of Cape Cod and fiction books for vacation readers will soon be moving to our office where the books will be more accessible. From fiction for reading and and relaxing, backround info on places you want to visit, or getting ideas for your next
trip here to info about the Cape's formative years, earliest residents, and how to cook local seafood, from where to go kayaking
to guides for fish, birds, and flowers, we have a bit of info on just about everything, even ghosts and pirates. We're not a city
library, but we are building a resource area for the convenience and enjoyment of our customers. There is even a selection of coloring book pages that fit the Cape for kids of all ages.

Modern fiction books are on their way to being donated to our local satellite of Spaulding Rehab Hospital, which has a
sale every spring to raise funds to cover the expenses of people on their staff who run in the Boston Marathon, and a
little light exercise will not hurt them. They can also be bought for $2 each, the amount Spaulding charges for a hardcover
book.

Our tenants and rental owners may borrow books for a returnable deposit of $5 (3 for $10) as that is the average replacement
cost at the secondhand bookstore I use. Others may also borrow books for a small non-returnable fee and the returnable deposit. The fee will help the library grow. A few books cannot leave the office because they cannot be replaced.

Some are books my parents collected many years ago. Some I have added over the years. Some were purchased used
from Abe
Books* and the many bookstores it represents.

Click any book title which is a link to see a description. I have given general age or grade level for kids' books based on
things such as vocabulary, type size, artwork, number of pages, and subject matter. These are very general. Younger
kids might enjoy the stories read aloud, while older kids might be interested in the subject. And though I left most of my
childhood behind many years ago, I liked them all.
