A large selection of non-fiction and reference titles about Cape Cod and/or by Cape Cod authors. We also have a smaller collection of Cape Cod fiction titles available.

Cape Cod Genealogy
In addition to the genealogy resources in our Cape Cod Reference collection, the Dennis Public Library is also the home of the Cape Cod Genealogical Society Genealogy Room. The CCGS holds daily office hours where you can get personal help with your genealogical research.

Cape Cod Salties Collection
The Cape Cod Salties Sportfishing Club has generously donated a number of fishing books, video tapes, and DVDs to the library. The Salties continually add to the collection, so there is always something new to see. If you need to know where the best fishing spots are, or how to tie a fly, stop in and check it out.
