The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met Sept. 9 in the home of Linda Carden. Members were served refreshments as they arrived for the regular monthly business meeting.

President Sue McLelland called the meeting to order and Secretary Susan Cotter read the minutes of the August meeting, gave the treasurer’s report, and conducted the roll call.

Mary Denson, chairman of the Nominating Committee, reported the list of officers for 2012-13 as follows: President Bernice Person; Vice President Billie Jo Wolff; Secretary-Treasurer Vanessa Bosanko; and Reporter Helen Deason. These officers were elected and will take their positions at the November meeting.

The October hostess will be Edith Akin with Barbara Wiatrek to be in charge of the program. The October Nursing Home Visitor will be Sue McLelland.

Program Leader Sharon West presented a very informative lecture on the Sarah Bain Chandler Public Library, located on Main Street next to the Stockdale City Hall and Community Building. The library has 9,627 items available to the 445 members of the library and any new members applying. These items include adult, teen, and children’s books; VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, audio books, and 272 youth books, color-coordinated. Adult fiction and nonfiction, Westerns, biographies, autobiographies, and inspirational books are available.

The library participates in the McNaughton Series of Best-Sellers, with new books arriving each month. These are hardback books and are replaced on the shelves every 12 months, at which time the library has the option to purchase any at a very reduced price. Also in the library are books from Gov. John B. Connally’s personal library, which were donated by his family and complete notes, newspaper clippings, and photos from the trial of the Branch Davidians of Waco. These two sections are for information and may not be checked out, but may be used in-house for research.

A scholarship is presented to a graduating senior of Stockdale High School each year who is a regular patron of the library. Two grants have been received by the library from the Tocker Foundation, which have enabled the Library Board to purchase furniture for the children’s, adult, and teen sections and recently to enroll in an automated series to have all books and items, along with the library members, to be listed in the computer programs. Also available to the public, free of charge, are three computers for their use. The library is open each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10 a.m. until noon and 1-4:30 p.m. The workers are all volunteers.

In attendance for the meeting were Edith Akin, Linda Carden, Judy Childress, Susan Cotter, Kay Deagen, Gina Deason, Mary Denson, Frances Hastings, Sandy Lynn, Sue McLelland, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Pat Rutland, Sharon West, Barbara Wiatrek, and Billie Jo Wolff.
