hoopla—Digital Movies, Music and More

We are excited to announce hoopla digital: a new digital media service provided to our patrons, through which you may access and enjoy over half a million titles, from six different formats: Movies, TV, Music Albums, Audiobooks , eBooks, and Comics/Graphic Novels. All are available from one location, via your computer, tablet or Smartphone! With hoopla, there are no hold lists, no extra apps or accounts needed or special steps to use it. It just works! On a mobile device, borrowed content may be temporarily downloaded and accessed offline or, in either the hoopla app or on a computer, all borrowed content may be streamed while connected to the internet.

We’re very excited to provide this service. It is easy to use and offers you instant access (no wait lists) to any titles you want. As a library cardholder, you may borrow up to 5 titles per month. Movies are available to watch for three days, eBooks and audiobooks and comics are available for 21 days, Music is available for seven days. Your download count resets at the beginning of each month. (Unused downloads are not carried over.)
