The Atheneum building is temporarily closed; The Virtual Atheneum is open 24/7. We are excited to bring the library into your home with our virtual programs and events.

Programs for teens at the Atheneum are developed with the suggestions and fresh perspective of our Teen Advisory Board, which meets once per month during the school year.

Local and visiting teens currently participate in a variety of workshops, classes and performance events, for example: Teen Crafts, the Middle School Book Club, Youth Poetry Slam and Teen Yoga. In addition, the Young Adult staff organizes visiting artist programs in collaboration with Nantucket Public Schools, the Nantucket Lighthouse School, Nantucket New School, and other island institutions.
