Library Resources: Spotlight on Hoopla

The library's Resources page has many different options for learning and entertainment, and they're all free with your library card!

The library offers several ways to stream and download ebooks, audiobooks, movies and music, and a collection of newspapers and magazines from different sources.

One of these great resources is Hoopla Digital.

With Hoopla, you can stream or temporarily download up to 10 movies, episodes of TV shows, audiobooks, and musical albums per month all from the comfort of home! All you need is a library card, email address, and a computer or mobile device.

You'll never have to wait your turn for a particular title; everything is available for checkout instantly! Hoopla automatically removes expired titles so you'll never be charged a late fee. Movies and TV episodes check out for 3 days, music for 7 days, and audiobooks for 21 days.

With Hoopla, you'll find books, videos, and music for the whole family with popular movies like Curious George, The Iron Lady, and books from Veronica Roth, Danielle Steel and more! Music selections include current artists like Ariana Grande and Lorde as well as classical music and genres including folk, hip-hop, blues, dance, country, and Christian and gospel. 

To get started, visit Hoopla's website and create an account by clicking the sign-up button on the home page. Select your library and fill in your library card number. You won't need to enter your PIN number. Next, you'll enter your email address and create a password. When you come back to sign in to use Hoopla, you'll log in with your email and password, not your library card.

If you have a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet, download the app from your device's app store. Hoopla has an Android and an iOS app. With a mobile device, you'll be able to either download your material or stream it. If you're using a computer instead, you will be streaming rather than downloading, so you'll need an internet connection the whole time you enjoy your checkouts.
