As a member of Hastings District Libraries you are able to borrow from a large collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks in our eLibrary. This is a free service to members of Hastings District Libraries.

An eBook is an electronic version of a printed book that is downloaded to your computer, tablet or smart phone. It may be transferred to a portable reading device such as a Kobo or Sony eReader.

An eAudiobook is an electronic version of a ‘talking book’. It is downloaded to your computer, tablet or smartphone and may be transferred to a portable listening device such as an MP3 Player or iPod.
