Sunshine Hall Free Library memorializes Nancy Stevenson

[ELDRED, NY] – In honor of her dedication to the Sunshine Hall Free Library, a colorful banner announces that the Children’s and Young Adult sections of the library have been named The Nancy Stevenson Kid Zone.”

The library held a small, covid restricted, dedication ceremony on January 28, 2021.

In life, Nancy gave time and money to the library. Having lost Nancy to breast cancer, she continues a legacy of love and devotion to, what she had engraved on her deck plaque, “the little library that could.”

Having left instructions with her husband, Ken Sable, the library has received a sizable gift. In addition, Nancy’s daughter, Lindsay Sable, secured a matching grant in memory of her mom.

Nancy Stevenson was an advocate for libraries, arts, and education. She provided technical expertise and financial support not only to SHFL. Among her many philanthropies, Nancy was a trustee for the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and became the heart and soul of the Big Eddy Film Festival.

She is missed.
