Our illustrious leader Peggy Hemerling!

During this difficult time, while you stay at home to keep the coronavirus from spreading, are you looking for books to read or movies to watch? The Hastings Public Library wants to help with that!

We are offering virtual library cards to residents of the City of Hastings, Hastings Charter Township and Rutland Charter Township who do not already have a library card. These virtual library cards will give residents free access to all of the digital content the Library has to offer.

We have three apps available that provide downloadable books, audio books, magazines, movies, TV series, music, and comics. They are Overdrive/Libby, Rbdigital, and Hoopla, which are all available in your app store and only require a library card number to activate. All three also work on desktop/laptop computers and Hoopla is available for Roku and other streaming devices.

To get a virtual library card fill out the Digital Access Library Card Form.

After your account is set up, a library staff member will call to give you your account number. If you have any questions, you can use the Contact Us form or email us at
