For Teens

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 – Friday, and 12:00 PM to closing on Saturdays.

In addition, the library offers a full range of Programs & Events for teens.
