hoopla

hoopla allows customers to instantly borrow e-books, comics, audiobooks, music, movies and television — with no holds, and no waiting!  And there's no need to worry about late fees; hoopla features an automated service that returns your item once your time is up.  Content can be streamed to computers, tablets or smartphones, and can be downloaded to mobile devices to allow for offline viewing any time. You can check out up to 6 items from hoopla each month.

Only interested in seeing content for kids and families?  Visit your "Settings" in the hoopla app or Account page on the hoopla site and flip the toggle to put hoopla into Kids Mode.  Doing so replicates the experience kids might have in the children's section of the Library.

Getting started:

If you are a first time user, create a hoopla account by clicking on the link to the hoopla site and selecting "Sign Up Now."  When creating your account, enter your email address, a password and your library card number. (Our Library does not use PIN numbers with hoopla.) If you are accessing with a tablet or smartphone, follow the instructions to download the free app compatible with your device. Enjoy! 

Daily usage cap:

Though our e-content services are free to customers, some of these services incur a cost to the Library each time someone borrows an item.  This is the case with hoopla.  To ensure our ability to provide access to hoopla year-round without exceeding our annual budget, there is a daily limit on hoopla lending.  If demand is especially high, and the limit is reached, you might receive a message when you try to borrow an item that says, "Our daily lending limit has been reached.  Please continue to browse, add to favorites, and come back tomorrow."  The spending limit rolls over at midnight EST each evening so we recommend trying again after the rollover.
