Atheneum Dance Festival 2022

Your gifts to the Dance Festival help move our mission forward – thank you. In response to challenging circumstances, all library programming is now being offered online in our 24/7 virtual Atheneum.

We are proud of the work our librarians are doing to continue to ensure that the Nantucket community – both near and far – have access to free programs and services. Your generosity continues to make this possible. Thank you for supporting the Dance Festival and your island library.
