With Hoopla, you can instantly borrow audiobooks, music, TV shows, e-books, and comics for free. The best part? No late fees. Ever. Everything automatically returns. You get 8 checkouts per month with your card. No wifi? No problem! You can download the materials you’ve borrowed to your device for streaming without using wifi or wasting data.

Signing up is simple. Download the Hoopla app to your phone or tablet or visit hoopladigital.com. Input an email, a password, and your library card number (on the back of your card) and voila!
