Cape Cod is typically sunny and bright, particularly during summer months ideal for catching beach rays. However, on an off-chance rainy day, the Brewster Ladies’ Library is a great place to spend your morning or afternoon. Pick up some local nonfiction, a romance paperback, or some of your favorite fiction at this community library and curl up to take a nice, vacation read. Clear your mind and sit back and relax with a good novel to leave all your “real world” worries behind. A trip to the Brewster Ladies’ Library will be perfect for the book lovers searching for a good read during their stay at the Candleberry Inn!
