How to get started with Hoopla

Hoopla is an innovative new service that partners with your local public library to bring you movies, TV series and music. All you need is a library card and a web browser, phone, or tablet.

With the many Hollywood blockbusters offered, you're sure to find something you'll enjoy. But it's not just the latest titles - we also have an extensive catalog of educational materials, children's titles, foreign films, and other hard-to-find content not offered anywhere else.

The hoopla web site and mobile apps are easy to use. We make an unlimited number of copies available to your library, so there are never any waiting lists. Start streaming immediately, or download a title to your phone or tablet for offline viewing later. We'll return it for you at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees.

Enjoy up to 10 items per card per month.
