Hoopla Service Change Announcement

Effective May 2018 The monthly checkout limit for Hoopla digital will be reduced from 10 per user to 5 per user. We understand this is a disappointing change, but it is necessary due to the overwhelming demand of the Hoopla service.  

Hoopla is a pay-per-use service, and as such, any time a patron checks out an item the Library pays a fee. As Hoopla has become a more popular service the charges have become unsustainable.

We are continuously exploring new material and services, and already have some options that may have the title you are seeking, and do not have a pay-per-use charge:

Axis 360

Through Axis 360, the library makes available a growing collection of ebooks in EPUB and PDF formats. Some titles are available in BLIO format, which provides a more interactive experience and includes text-to-speech. There are fiction and non-fiction materials, and young adult and juvenile titles as well as adult.For assistance using your device, a help screen is provided. If you still need help, drop one of our librarians an email at ebooks@lib.chattanooga.gov and we will be happy to assist you.
