Books & Periodicals

          The Hastings Public Library has a collection of 60,000 books and audiovisual materials. Most materials can be borrowed. All you need is a current, bar-coded library card from the Westchester Library System (WLS). You can browse our shelves, ask a librarian for help, or look up an item in our computer-based catalogs at the library or even from home.

Inter-Library Loans

          If an item is not available in the catalog, we may be able to find it at a library outside WLS, and borrow it through inter-library loan. Please inquire at the reference desk or submit your request via the WLS website.

          Back issues of magazines are available to be checked out. The library subscribes to the following publications:
