Ann Scott, formerly of the Basalt Regional Library in western Colorado, will become the next Executive Director of the Nantucket Atheneum in mid-September.
In her role as the institution’s ninth director, Scott will oversee all aspects of the Atheneum, which include circulating collections of books and media for children, teens and adults, an archival collection of historic artifacts, stewardship of the historic 1847 building and garden, and the execution of more than 1,300 programs a year.
We asked our board of trustees about their favorite summer reads. Click here to see the list of books they enjoyed diving into this year.
The Atheneum had added a new online resource called AtoZ World Food, a database of more than 7,000 traditional recipes from 174 countries. It describes thousands of ingredients, and contains many articles about food culture.
The service is free. Just sign in with your library card and start cooking today.

Register to Vote
The Nantucket Atheneum offers residents these links to registering themselves to vote or check their staus. By providing more options with this reminder “to register,” we hope to make Nantucketeers engaged voters.
