What is hoopla?

Hoopla is an online streaming service that provides library patrons with access to thousands of movies, television shows, music albums, eBooks, audiobooks and comics—from major Hollywood studios, record companies and publishers—to borrow for instant streaming or temporary downloading to their smartphones, tablets and computers.

You can access any of the titles instantly, without having to place a hold or wait for the title to become available.

How many items can you check out? How do I return items?

Currently a patron can check out five items per month.  Electronic books check out for 21 days; movies and music for seven days. After your lending period is over, the title is automatically checked back in. 

How do you access hoopla?

There are three ways you can access hoopla:
1.  Online from the website. A link will be added to the web site under “Library Online Resources” and “Downloadable” section.

2.  Through the hoopla link on the library’s online catalog.

3.  From a mobile device through an app. There are versions available for both Android and iOS. You can find a list of supported devices here.  Certain titles may be downloaded to the device for offline viewing.

I noticed there is a problem with the hoopla app/site. Who should I contact?

Midwest Tape, the vendor behind hoopla, handles everything on that end. There is an online help page which has an e-mail help link. The app version also has a built in help section.
