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.
