The Commonwealth Catalog is a secondary resource that allows library patrons access to libraries that hold unique collections that are not available in the CLAMS catalog.
The Commonwealth Catalog covers millions of titles at participating libraries across Massachusetts. Items requested through the Commonwealth Catalog will take a few days to reach the Nantucket Atheneum. Nantucket Atheneum will notify you when your items are ready for pickup. Items must be returned to the Nantucket Atheneum.
Please search the CLAMS catalog first. If the material you want is not available in the CLAMS catalog, search the Commonwealth Catalog.

Volunteering is a wonderful way to stay involved in your community, keep your skills up-to-date or learn new ones, build experience for your resume, and meet new people.
Free conversational English classes for all levels every Thursday at 6 pm. The LVA program also offers free one-on-one tutoring.

The Nantucket Atheneum is committed to the principles stated in the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights and Freedom to Read statements. The Nantucket Atheneum will acknowledge comments and questions regarding the appropriateness of selection or non-selection of individual works. In such cases, the patron is invited to document specific objections on a special reconsideration form that can be obtained at the Circulation Desk. The form will be reviewed by the Director, and a response will be communicated in a timely manner.
Please review the Nantucket Atheneum rules of conduct for acceptable use of the Internet.
