Read So Much More with Hoopla!

This past year has greatly changed my reading habits. Before we found ourselves safer at home last spring, I was a reluctant e-reader. I sought the weight of a real, paper book in my hands, and relished the time away from a screen.  Since then I’ve discovered, at times out of necessity, a whole new appreciation for e-books and e-audiobooks.

Hoopla, in particular, has become a go-to for on-demand reads. Hoopla is a streaming platform available with your library card. All items on Hoopla are available on demand, so there is no wait. You can check-out e-books and e-audiobooks, and stream movies and TV shows.

Learn how to get started with Hoopla and how to find great e-book and e-audio recommendations!

You can also follow these step-by-step instructions.

Want to know more about Hoopla? The Public Library Reference staff has an excellent video on setting up Hoopla available as a part of their A Little Help from the Library video series. Since you will need your library card PIN to sign up for Hoopla, we also recommend checking out their video on creating a PIN.

You can also give us a call at 715-839-5007 or send us your questions

Happy Reading!
