Hoopla is an online service for library users to access eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMusic, movies, and TV shows using portable devices like smartphones and tablets, as well as conventional computers and hoopla Viewing/Listening Stations at the Main Library.
You can find the link to hoopla from our homepage by following the links to eLibrary, Articles & Databases then click on "H" for hoopla and scroll down to the hoopla link. You can also find the link in the eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMusic, and eVideo sections of our website.
Once you click on the link to the Hoopla site you will be asked to enter your library card number. If you are a first time user, follow the instructions to download the free app compatible with your device.

Much like other library items, library cardholders are allowed to check out 20 electronic items (e.g., eAudiobooks, eBooks, eMusic, eVideos) per month. There are no late fees and no renewals. Once your item has expired, it will no longer play on your device. Check out periods are as follows:
