About Item Returns

We have extended the loan period on all items currently out on loan and overdue charges have also been suspended. Please keep your library items at home, enjoy and look after them for us until we re-open. 

New Digital Only membership 

We have launched an all new digital only library membership for Hastings District, Napier or Central Hawkes Bay residents who are not already library members

With digital only membership, you can get access to our full range of online resources. Go to our JOIN page to sign up online.

Using the Library at home 

We have a huge range of eBooks, eAudiobooks, kids educational games and databases that library members can access from home on our website.

To access online content you need to login with your Library card number and PIN. If you are unsure of your PIN, email us at with your Library card number, full name and contact details, and we will set one up.
