Funded by the Friends of the Library, hoopla is a groundbreaking digital media service that allows patrons to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, comics and TV shows to enjoy on computers, tablets, or phones – and even TVs! Titles can be streamed immediately, or downloaded for offline enjoyment later. There are hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from, with more being added daily. Hoopla is like having your public library at your fingertips. Anytime. Anywhere.
