A few things to remember about Hoopla

Each format checks out for a limited amout of time

  • Movies and TV Shows: 3 days
  • Music Albums: 7 days
  • Ebooks, audiobooks, and comics: 21 days

You have a limited number of checkouts available each month. We're starting you off with 5, but know that this could change based on overall usage. Anything you borrow counts as a check out, even if you don't watch or listen to it. Watching multiple times during a checkout period only uses 1 total checkout. . 

The titles in Hoopla are always available. No holds lists, and no need to return items early. This means you cannot renew items, either. Simply check out the item again after its loan period is up. (Counts as another chekout toward your total).
