Patrons of the Montgomery County Library and Polk County Public Library will now be able to download digital, according to Mary Renick, Interim Librarian. The library is partnering with Hoopla Digital to allow patrons to download books, audio books, music, videos and movies to their personal devices. Hoopla provides access to thousands of titles with more new content being added all the time. Initially, patrons will be limited to five downloads per month; this number will likely increase as the system becomes more familiar. Lending periods for e-materials will differ from those for printed materials.
Hoopla can be accessed on Apple iOS 6.0+, Android devices and via the four major web browsers. To access the system on a mobile device, a patron will need to first download the FREE Hoopla Digital app from the App Store or Google Play on the device. Then log on at www.hoopladigital.com and click “sign up”.
A current library card and valid e-mail address are required, as well as personal passwords. Library staff will be happy to provide assistance to anyone encountering difficulty registering.
