        On May 24, 2019, while undergoing surgery for a broken hip, the founding and long-time Director of the Haysville Community Library Betty Cattrell passed away.

        Known to quite literally everyone who has lived in Haysville for even a brief period, Betty’s contributions to this community are inestimable. Across five decades, she nurtured and built the library from a mere dream into an active and vital institution at the core of our civic life. She touched countless citizens through her dedicated efforts to create a better Haysville. Betty will be sorely missed.

        Betty Cattrell was one of a kind, never to be replicated or equaled.

        While we at the Haysville Community Library mourn her passing, we also celebrate her life.

        February 27, 1927 - May 24, 2019
