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

Gravestone art is an important part of American culture. From death’s-heads and angels to weeping willows and wheat sheaves, gravestone art speaks the language of symbolism. Carved messages on grave markers tell of the deceased’s life and spirit without using words. Join us to discover the symbols on the stones.
