Digital Content Library Card Request

Use this form to request a library card to access our digital content during the coronavirus stay at home order.

During the stay at home order from Governor Whitmer for the coronavirus situation, the Hastings Public Library wants to help patrons in our service area get access to 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.

Overdrive/Libby, RBDigital, and Hoopla combined offer tens of thousands of downloads for movies, books, audiobooks, comic books and more.

Fill out the form below to request a digital access only library card. Please note:

  1. This card can only be used to access the three digital services of Overdrive/Libby, RBDigital, and Hoopla.
  2. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian request the card.
  3. Once the stay at home order is lifted, come to the library with your ID to pick up the physical library card. We will then activate it for a full year with full access to check out physical materials in addition to digital content.
  4. This card will be deactivated after the stay at home order is lifted until you come to the library to pick up your physical card.

Adult/Juvenile   Is this card for an adult or a juvenile under 18 years of age? Note Juveniles require a parent or guardian to set up an account.

Relationship Complete if requesting for a juvenile.

Birth Date   If requesting for a juvenile, use their birth date here.
/ /  

Please allow 2 business days for processing of your request.

If you have questions after submitting the library card request form, please use the Contact Us form or email us at

Someone from the library will call you once your new library card has been activated.

We understand these are difficult times and hope getting access to the digital content we offer provides some comfort and distraction. Stay safe.
