Using Hoopla

Visit the website to stream using your internet connection, or download the Hoopla App. Using the app you can stream using your data or Wi-Fi, or download to the app and access offline. Please note Hoopla won't stream through a mobile browser - you do need to download the app. You can borrow 10 items per month, which resets the first day of every month.

Once you've issued an item to your account you have a set period of time to enjoy it:

  • 3 days to watch a movie or TV episode
  • 7 days to listen to a music album
  • 21 days to listen to an audio book or read any e-Book or comic.
