Hallettsville's library director honored with retirement reception

A reception honoring Hallettsville's Friench Simpson Memorial Library's director, Carol Morisak, will be from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the library. Morisak has been director of the library for 33 years and is retiring this month.

She has guided the library from a small, 2,500-square-foot space with nothing but printed materials to a modern 9,000-square-foot facility.

The reception is sponsored by the city of Hallettsville, the Hallettsville Reading Club, and the Friench Simpson Library board members. The public is invited. Refreshments will be served.
