More Library Fundraisers

Entertainment Books

The 2008 Entertainment Book featuring discount coupons for area restaurants, stores and movie theatres is now available at the Lane Memorial Library.

Each book contains a membership card good for 2 for 1 dining as well as discount coupons for shopping, movie tickets, travel, goods and services in New Hampshire, Southern Maine and Massachusetts. Individual books are $25 and can be purchased at the Library’s circulation desk. The books also include discount coupons for airlines, hotels, rental cars and national chain stores. Once a book is purchased, individuals can register for additional discounts via e-mail.

Ruth Stimson Art Work

Note cards by Ruth Stimson, a well-known educator, community leader, environmentalist and artist, are on sale at the library. The note cards feature reproductions of Stimson’s artwork and serve as a fundraiser for the Friends.

Stimson was a Hampton resident, served as a trustee for the Lane Memorial Library and was a member of several organizations including the Hampton Garden Club and Historical Society. After Stimson’s 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 which are $10 per set of five note cards. They can be purchased at the circulation desk at the library and are also available at the Tuck Museum and at Oceanside Real Estate and Inn Gift Shop at 365 Ocean Blvd. in Hampton.

These fundraisers are two of many events organized by the Friends, a volunteer organization that sponsors speakers, exhibits, special events and fundraisers for the benefit of the Lane Memorial Library.
