You can check out e-books and stream materials anywhere with our online offerings, and with Hoopla, there are no holds!
Summer Reading season is coming up quick, and if you are like us, you are looking forward to getting more time (and daylight!) to read and relax outside, and possibly on vacation. Some outings you might have all planned out, with your library books ready to go, and your eBooks pre-downloaded on your Kindle or iPad… but what about those impromptu Sunday afternoon excursions? Or, what if everything you want to read or listen to is on hold?
Enter Hoopla, a new offering from Henrico County Public Library, that allows you to download or stream eBooks, eAudiobooks, music, movies, and TV free with your library card. Best of all, there are no holds with Hoopla materials – so if you see something you like, it’s yours! Just be mindful of your monthly checkout limit of seven items/month. There are great materials on Hoopla for all ages, from family friendly movies, to cool graphic novels for teens. Everyone can find something they want on Hoopla, and get it right away.
To learn more about getting started with Hoopla, visit our eBooks & More page for detailed help guides and FAQs. You’ll also find Zinio, a free digital magazine resource that allows you to browse issues of popular magazines on your computer, tablet, or phone, and Tumblebooks, which provides great e-Picture Books for kids. Pack light for your vacations – just bring your computer, tablet, eReader, or phone and load it up with great, free reads (and music and movies!) from HCPL.
Happy Summer Reading!
