• Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce to co-host Retail Marijuana Forum

  • Check Out a Laptop and Hotspot from the Atheneum

    January, 2020
    The Atheneum is excited to announce that, thanks to a grant from the Nantucket Fund for Emergency
    Relief through the Nantucket Community Foundation, we have recently purchased 20 HP Chromebooks
    and 20 Coolpad Surf Mobile Hotspots. These devices are now available for lending to all library card
    holders as Connect Kits.

    Each Connect Kit contains one Chromebook and one Mobile Hotspot, allowing patrons to connect to the
    internet for school, work, or personal use. Kits may be checked out for 14 days with the option to renew if
    no other patrons are waiting.

    To Reserve a Kit:
    ● Email info@nantucketatheneum.org
    ● Call 508-228-1110 (x101) Monday-Friday, 9AM-2PM

    Instructions for pickup will be provided at the time of request.

    We are immensely grateful to the Community Foundation’s Nantucket
    Fund for Emergency Relief for helping us find new ways to allow for greater and more equitable access to digital services and technology on Nantucket! It is our hope that these kits will help our neighbors who are without reliable digital access stay connected to friends, family, and to the world. More information here.

    The Nantucket Atheneum’s mission is to serve the Nantucket community as the island’s public library by
    providing free and equal access to library materials, cultural and educational programming, and by
    creating safe and accessible spaces for connection and learning. Visit our website at
