Hoopla offers thousands of movies, television shows, music albums and audiobooks from major Hollywood studios, record companies and publishers. Hoopla also offers eBooks and comics! Instantly stream or temporarily download up to 8 titles every month for free with your Cook Memorial Library Card.
Content can be streamed on mobile devices or online. Titles can be downloaded for offline watching or listening.
The borrowing period for a movie or television episode is 3 days, a music album is 7 days, and an eBook, eAudiobook, or comic is 21 days.
Titles are automatically returned. However, 2 days prior to the date when access to the title expires, customers will see a renewal button which will allow them to renew the item and extend the loan period if they wish. This is essentially borrowing the item again, and will count towards the monthly borrowing allowance.
Titles can be returned early.
