Over the past few years, the Nantucket Atheneum has applied for, and received grants, for teen services from three foundations: The Nantucket Golf Club Foundation, the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services, and an anonymous foundation.
With these funds, the Atheneum has:
- Created a new Young Adult Area on the west side of the Great Hall.
- Improved the lower gallery space to accommodate small-group teen programs.
- Expanded the Young Adult collection with additional fiction and non-fiction titles, new DVDs, reference, magazine and graphic novel sections.
- Increased programming for teens.
Please stop by and visit the Young Adult Area in the Great Hall, which is open whenever the library is open, and staffed with a YA Services assistant from 2:30PM to closing Tuesday â€“ Friday, and 12:00 PM to closing on Saturdays.
In addition, the library offers a full range of Programs & Events for teens.
