Library Director from Texas Donates Cookbooks to SoFAB

by Chris Smith

SoFAB has received a box of 24 cookbooks from Belton, Texas.

The books are a combination of gifts from the library director, Kim Kroll, who shops for cookbooks at antique stores, and de-accessioned books from the Lena Armstrong Public Library, City of Belton, Texas.

The cookbooks are from Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Florida, New Mexico, and Kansas. Among the books are:

  • Prize Winning Recipes of the State Fair of Texas
  • The Art of Cooking in Cameron Texas
  • Farm Journal’s Freezing and Canning Cookbook
  • Home Cookin’ compiled by the Junior League of Wichita Falls
  • Best of the Best of New Mexico
  • Feastin’ with the Federation, the City Federation of Women’s Clubs, Temple Texas, (1955)
  • Bell County’s Kitchen Secrets (from the early 1950s and has an Aunt Jemima type character on the cover)
