We are excited to announce...

 

hoopla digital: a new digital media service through which you may access and enjoy nearly half a million titles from six different formats: Movies, TV, Music Albums, eAudiobooks, eBooks, and Comics/Graphic Novels. hoopla digital has content for all ages, thatís always available, all in one location, from your computer, tablet or Smartphone!

 

On a mobile device, borrowed content may be temporarily downloaded and accessed offline or, in either the app or on a computer, all borrowed content may be enjoyed while connected to the internet by streaming.

 

We really love this service. It is easy to use and provides instant access (again, with no waiting!) to all hoopla content.

Leominster Public Library cardholders may borrow up to 8 titles per month.

2. Select Leominster Public Library from the "Choose your Library" menu.

3. You will be asked to enter your library card number.  NOTE:  Our hoopla account will only authorize cards with a Leominster bar code number - these numbers begin with the prefix 28118 or the prefix D69.  If you do not have a card with a Leominster bar code, you will need to exchange your current C/WMARS card for a Leominster card.  You may do this at the Library's Circulation Desk at no cost to you.

FAQs:

Why doesn't hoopla have waiting lists for popular books like Overdrive, Axis360, and other eBook providers?

  • Rather than charge libraries a large flat fee for use of their entire collection of materials and limiting the number of copies of each title available, hoopla charges libraries a small amount of money for each individual item check-out from its collection.  This was, popular items may be checked out by more than one person at the same time.

Why am I limited to eight items each month?

  • Limiting the number of items each person can check out in a month is a compromise that allows us to stay within a budget while making the service worthwhile for patrons AND also making it possible for as many patrons as possible to use the service.

For more information or should you have questions, please contact us.  You can visit our 2nd floor Information Desk, call us at 978-534-7522, or email us at leomref@cwmars.org.
