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.
