As a member of the Historical Society of Michigan (HSM), the Hastings Public Library is able to give patrons access to virtual presentations on Michigan history that we showed in our Community Room pre-COVID.

History Hounds

In 1948, G. Mennen Williams, a young Democrat who sported a green polka-dotted bow tie, won the Michigan gubernatorial race. “Soapy” Williams became one of Michigan’s longest-serving governors and later served as Assistant Secretary of State. Join us to learn about Soapy Williams, “The Conscience of the Democratic Party.”
