New Ruth Stimson notecards

The Friends are excited to announce the sale of the second set of Ruth Stimson “Art” Notecards. Ruth Stimson is fondly remembered by many in Hampton as a true “Renaissance Woman.” She was a talented artist, passionate environmentalist, educator, community leader, library supporter, and expert gardener. As a Hampton resident, she served in several capacities for the Lane Memorial Library. She was a member of several organizations including the Hampton Garden Club and Historical Society. After her death, her artwork was given to the Lane Memorial Library and sold at a silent auction. Several pieces have been selected and reproduced as note cards. It is very fitting that these fine reproductions of her artwork will serve as a fundraiser for the Friends of the Lane Memorial Library. They can be purchased at the library and at the Tuck Museum in Hampton for $10 per set of 5 notecards. Please support the library through the purchase of these beautiful art reproductions. We are honored and excited to be able to make her work available for all to enjoy.
