The Hastings Public Library wants to help patrons in our service area get access to physical and digital resources. Anyone living in the City of Hastings, Hastings Charter Township or Rutland Charter Township who does not have one already, can request a library card in order to get access to our digital content.

Note: non-residents living outside the City and two townships can request a non-resident card which costs $25 per quarter. For more information, go to the Non-Resident Library Card page.
