Kids

Kids use their creativity during Maker Space eventsAll three Hastings District Libraries have a great, wide-ranging children’s collection, which we are always adding to and updating.

We love to encourage reading at any age, getting imaginations running. Our collections are a fantastic resource to stimulate your children’s thinking, help them to develop positive, lifelong reading habits and expand their general knowledge.

Our Children’s Library Collection extends from picture and board books, children’s comics and magazines, through to senior fiction and non-fiction, and the children’s Māori Collection.
