Imagine streaming e-books, movies, music albums, audiobooks and TV shows online for free, with no waiting in a queue. It would be pretty amazing, right? I’m here to tell you that with your Multnomah County Library card, you can.
Hoopla is a Netflix-like digital streaming service that you can use on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Hoopla items show up when you search the library catalog (they say “streaming”). You can also browse and search on the Hoopla site directly.
You can borrow up to eight items per month. You can check out music albums for one week, e-books and audiobooks for three weeks, and TV and movies for 72 hours.
Don’t have an internet connection at home? That’s okay, because with the Hoopla app, you can download content directly to your device from a public Wi-Fi connection (like at the library).
As always, you can come in to any library if you need help of any kind whatsoever! That’s what we’re here for.
