Library – Hastings Library Associates

Hastings Branch library opened February 17, 1959.  It was the last branch library opened in Pasadena.  In the mid-1960s it was expanded (the northern section and entrance and north-eastern parking lot were added).

Hastings Branch library has the largest circulation of any branch library – over 210,000 items per year.  It has a collection of over 64,000 items.  It has the most visitors of any branch library – around 120,000 visits per year.   In 2002-2003 over 13,900 children attended children’s programs.

The library is immediately adjacent to the north of our neighborhood and has long served not only as an information source but as a meeting and polling place.
