The Coffin School Trustees are very impressed by the hard work and dedication of the Nantucket Atheneum Library this year. With the programs offered by you during the most difficult of times, the Atheneum persevered and the children of Nantucket were given wonderful opportunities to enjoy the Atheneum, and all if offers, in a safe, but yet fun, way.
