Newspapers and News Magazines from Nantucket, Cape Code, Boston Metro Area, and beyond.
The Cape Libraries Automated Materials Sharing (CLAMS) catalog is the primary catalog of the Nantucket Atheneum.
CLAMS is the shared library catalog of the Cape and Islands Libraries Automated Materials Sharing Network, a non-profit, cooperative association of libraries on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket.
Member libraries share resources — over 1.6 million items including books, magazines, and non-print resources — through a computer network with terminals located in each member library and also through an online portal.
A CLAMS library card allows patrons to borrow books and other materials from all member libraries.
The Atheneum’s collection of Nantucket newspapers spans from 1816, the year that The Nantucket Gazette was first published, to today, with Nantucket’s weekly newspaper, The Inquirer and Mirror. We preserve original copies of these papers. All are available on microfilm for use in the library.
I’ve worked as a volunteer for the library for 10 years. I have never found a more pleasant, dedicated and professional group of people. The Atheneum and its staff are a treasure for this town.
