My Account Login

To log in to My Account in the HDL Catalogue, you will need:

  •     A Hastings District Library card number. You may ask at the desk about having a user name added, to use as an alternative to your library card number.  (A user name must be typed in CAPITALS.)
  •     A PIN (password) added to your card - ask at the desk about this.

A Hastings District Library card and PIN will also enable you to log into the eLibrary to view eBook and eAudiobook catalogues.

Junior Members & Kidz Cards

Children under 16 years have a Junior membership.

A junior registration form requires the signature and ID of a parent or guardian, and proof of address.  We also record the school attended.

Children's cards are issued for their personal use.

Junior items on a child's card are eligible for junior overdue charges. Some junior items have rental charges, e.g. Children's DVDs & CDs

A junior item taken out on an adult card is eligible for adult extended loan charges.

Visitors' Cards

If you are visiting this region for a short while you may apply for a visitor's card.

Bring in personal photo ID (such as a passport) and proof of both your permanent and temporary address.

There is a charge of $20 payable on joining and this will give you membership for 3 months.

Only 3 items may be issued on your card at any one time.
