Myrick to lead Stockdale library
Sarah Bain Chandler Public Library
The city of Stockdale welcomes new life to the Sarah Bain Chandler Public Library. Candence “Nikki” Myrick took the job of library manager in early May. Her position is funded by the Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library. Her educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in education from Texas A&M University, a Master of Library Science from Sam Houston State University, and a Master of Arts from Savannah College of Art & Design. Nikki taught reading, English, and art at La Vernia Junior High School before joining the Sarah Bain Chandler Library.
Nikki is working hard to gain the library state accreditation as a public library. One of her goals for the library is to develop a larger selection of books for a newly created teen area in order to encourage more of the Stockdale youths to use the library services. The library is increasing its number of planned events for all ages. Also watch for the rental DVD selection to start increasing. Currently, Nikki and her assistant are raising money for a new teen room by hosting a book sale inside the library through Friday, Aug. 15.
Her assistant, Carole Rasco, is also new to the Stockdale library. Carole’s position is funded by the federal seniors work program, Experience Works. She brings a lot of knowledge to the library with her vast experiences. She has a paralegal certificate as well as a master’s degree in counseling.
Under Nikki’s direction, the library will become a place where people in the Stockdale community can stop by to use the free Wi-Fi, check out materials, and use the Internet, all while you enjoy a cup of coffee in a peaceful setting.
