Link to the library: Binging on hoopla

0


If you’ve used the hoopla before, you’ll know that it provides free instant loans to your digital device or computer via your library card to over 500,000 titles available to stream instantly, ranging from movies, TV episodes, albums to full music, eBooks, comics and audiobooks.

One of the long-standing traditions associated with the start of a New Year is the hope that it will bring new friendships, resolutions and opportunities.

Here at the Airdrie Public Library (APL), we are all looking for new opportunities.

That’s why we offer programs that provide opportunities to improve your literacy, financial stability, physical health and more.

A new opportunity at APL for 2022 presents itself through one of our popular eResources, hoopla.

If you’ve used the hoopla before, you’ll know that it provides free instant loans to your digital device or computer via your library card to over 500,000 titles available to stream instantly, ranging from movies, TV episodes, albums to full music, eBooks, comics and audiobooks.

Of course, you’ll also know that cardholders only have two instant loans per month, like a movie and an eBook.

Well, now hoopla offers the BingePass hoopla.

This new type of instant borrowing from hoopla gives customers unlimited access to collections of streaming content for seven days for each of the two instant loans offered by your library card.

With the introduction of hoopla BingePass, APL customers will also have access to a new feature – hoopla Magazines.

Hoopla Magazines begins with current issues of over 50 popular magazines, all accessible with a single hoopla instant loan.

When a customer uses one of their borrowings for a BingePass, they will have access to all magazine titles with one year of back issues each for a period of seven days.

The BingePass also allows customers to access the Great Routes, some of which are currently in hoopla. But with the BingePass model, they will be able to take a full course and have access to over 300 popular courses.

These courses include National Geographic Fundamentals of Photography, Understanding Investments, Practicing Mindfulness, and much more.

Hoopla BingePass is available on iOS and Android devices and through your computer’s web browser.
