Hoopla

Stream videos, television shows, audiobooks, eBooks, graphic novels, and music for free with our Hoopla Digital eResource! Simply sign up using your email address and library card number. Enjoy up to 4 titles a month!

Why only 4 titles a month?

Digital services often have different pricing models: some are flat rate and others charge per use. Hoopla charges the Library for each title used. As a result, we must limit the number of titles our members can download or stream each month.

It’s Easy:

1. Download the Hoopla app or go to hoopladigital.com
2. Create an account with your email, Library card and pin number
3. Borrow free digital movies, music and more with no late fees!
4. If you are using the Hoopla app on a mobile device then choose to stream the content or to download it so it can be accessed when not connected to the internet.

Please note: if you stream or download content from Hoopla, it can consume a lot of data. Consider visiting the Library and using our free WiFi!
