It is quite a challenge to keep up-to-date with technology. We are offering free individual instruction sessions at all three libraries.
Please note there are no set classes planned until June as we are changing our computer system.
Were you given a gadget for a present but are not sure how to use it? Having a problem using a computer programme, email, the internet, eBooks etc? Book a one-to-one 45 minute session with a staff member. Bring your questions, problems or gadgets.
To book a free Q & A session, ask library staff or contact Ross on 06 871 5180.
Not sure how to use your mobile phone? Book in for a FREE mobile phone lesson at one of our libraries!
Sessions are under a half hour each, so covering all topics may take more than one session, depending on your needs.
Ask at the desk about these sessions - we have staff who can show you how to use your mobile. Read more...
Unwanted mobile phone?
Auckland’s Starship children’s hospital is to benefit from the collection of unwanted mobile phones in Hastings.
The phones are being collected at the libraries in Hastings, Havelock North and Flaxmere and will be refurbished and then onsold, with a percentage of the proceeds going to Starship Hospital to fund care for sick children. Read more...
You may be eligible for a scholarship or grant! Do you or a member of your family need help searching for information on scholarships or grants? Ask about searching Breakout. This database is always available to use in our libraries and there is no charge.
BreakOut is a searchable funding database from the Funding Information Service (FIS), updated frequently.
Chasing dollars? If your community organisation is looking for funding, come along to a free FundView Workshop at Hastings Library.
This term's workshops have finished, but we are taking expressions of interest for future workshops.
Fundview is available at all times to use in our libraries, no charge.
FundView is New Zealand's primary source of information about funding for voluntary organisations, an extensive database of funders, available to search at Hastings District Libraries.
