The Nantucket Atheneum is pleased to offer Community Service opportunities in cooperation with the Nantucket High School Guidance Department. Participants must be students at Nantucket High School and members of the Atheneum’s Teen Advisory Board. Community Service hours are awarded for actively participating in Teen Advisory Board meetings as well as for library projects that emanate from those meetings. Possible opportunities include repairing library materials, shelving books, assembling new patron packets, helping with children’s programs, or assisting with the design and implementation of teen events.
Our volunteer team is one of the real strengths behind the library’s daily operations. They play a vital role in supporting and enhancing our programs, services and mission statement. 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.
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.
