The Nantucket Atheneum offers a welcoming, educational, and safe place for you and your child. The staff of the Weezie Library for Children would like to help you and your child in your search for recreational, informative and enriching literature and media. While we are ready and willing to serve your needs, we are not authorized to act in loco parentis (in the place of a parent). Parents, guardians, and caregivers are responsible for the safety, behavior, and supervision of their children at all times in the Atheneum and on Atheneum property. Children, like all library users, are required to respect library property and to act in a manner appropriate to the use and function of the library. Please review our guidelines which clarify our concerns and expectations.
The public spaces of the Nantucket Atheneum are primarily for library use and for occasional use by community organizations. Please review our guidelines for use of the Nantucket Atheneum public spaces.
