Hoopla is here!

Digital Movies, Music, Books, Audio and More – Instantly Available – 24/7 – Free with your Library Card!

We are excited to announce that beginning July 1, the library will be adding hoopla digital: a new digital media service through which you may access and enjoy over half a million titles, from six different formats: Movies, TV, Music Albums, eAudiobooks , eBooks, and Comics/Graphic Novels. All in one location, from 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 app or on a computer, all borrowed content may be enjoyed while connected to the internet by streaming. We really love this service. It is easy to use and provides our library patrons instant access (again, with no waiting!!) to any titles they want. As a library cardholder, you may borrow up to 10 titles per month.

To register for and enjoy hoopla digital for free with your library card, please download the hoopla digital app from your Apple or Google Play store on your mobile device. If you are using a computer, you may visit www.hoopladigital.com/home.
