The Story of Our Library


In September 1932, two local citizens, Mrs. Harvey Renger and Miss Evelyn Lacy, announced that a rental library, called the “Library Nook” had been organized for the purpose of supplying the people of Hallettsville with the best in books at the lowest possible cost.  The yearly subscription was 50 cents and 75 individuals had already become members. This library was fashioned after successful rental libraries in larger cities. The library would be open each day in the East Building, across from the East Hotel. 

HERE is the rest of the Story.


Library Board

The Library Advisory Board is a 7 member board made up of citizens of Hallettsville and Lavaca County. The Board works with the Librarian and Staff on such matters as Long Range Planning, Library Policies and conceptual plans concerning the library building.
