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.
