On Monday night, May 15, 2023, a group of new members of the Hennessey Historical Society gathered at the library to attend a presentation by Chad Williams, the Director of Research at the Oklahoma Historical Society. Williams provided valuable information about the grant programs and resources that the state offers. 

Kevin Hopkins, the leader of the Hennessey Historical Society, discussed the next steps for the group, which includes establishing a 501-3c nonprofit and creating the bylaws. 

The Hennessey Historical Society was recently formed to safeguard and raise funds for the library building, as well as other structures in the town. In attendance were Kevin Hopkins, Scott Hajek, and Jack Quirk.
