Gaz Sayz - Libraries are Awesome for Communities

"Public libraries at their best are the heartbeat of communities, providing knowlege, pleasure, services and support to all at every stage of their lives."  Said by someone important.

At Hastings District Libraries we work closely with our communities to ensure services we are providing enhance their social, cultural and economic wellbeing.

Programmes are developed and implemented in our three libraries depending on the communities wants and needs.

Our Vision and Mission


The Hastings District Libraries will be centres for lifelong learning and recreation.  Each library will be a focal point for its own community.


To enrich the life of the community by providing a library service that meets people's informational, recreational and cultural needs.
