Each year Nantucket Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Community Hero Calendar.


Community Hero Molly Anderson - November 2018


November 2018 Community Hero


Molly Anderson arrived on Nantucket in 2005 to take the helm at the Nantucket Atheneum. Since 1884, the Atheneum has been the cultural education hub of the island. Open six days a week year-round, this free public library means so much to so many. Molly’s commitment to Nantucket is tireless, as she sits on the Nantucket Cultural Center Advisory Board, the Finance Committee for the First Congregational Church, the Community Foundation of Nantucket and the Housing Nantucket Advisory Board.




Molly Anderson is sending her $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Foundation to the Nantucket Atheneum.


Thank you, Molly, for your tireless commitment to Nantucket.
