Library card holders can access over 950,000 titles (audiobooks, eBooks, comics, movies and TV). Content can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the hoopla digital app for iOS, Android, AppleTV, Chromecast or Roku.

Hoopla Digital has pioneered a unique model that allows patrons to borrow content immediately, removing artificial availability constraints and maximizing the power of digital content and Internet distribution. Technologically, hoopla digital focuses on the latest browser, phone, tablet and TV products to deliver the best possible experience to each user – the public library patron.

“We are so excited to add hoopla digital to our already robust digital services,” says Library Director, Rosanna McGinnis. “My favorite aspect is how it complements our existing eBook platforms: Overdrive and cloudLibrary. We know there can sometimes be long wait periods, or we may not have that exact item you are looking for, but the availability of hoopla digital is fantastic. In fact, items are not even limited to one user at a time. Your book club or other community group can all borrow and read, listen or watch an item simultaneously! All you need is a library card.” 

The hoopla digital collection includes fan favorite movies, newly released albums, New York Times bestselling titles and exclusive STEAM educational content to enhance each user’s experience.
