Hoopla: Movies, TV, Music and Audiobooks

Entertainment at your library, no waiting!

DivergentI think we can all agree that libraries are amazing.  Free access to books, movies, magazines, music, databases—what’s not to love?  Well, waiting for your holds isn’t exactly exhilarating.  Perhaps you’re one of the 246 people waiting for a copy of Divergent by Veronica Roth.  Did you know that the library has a new subscription service that gives access to movies, TV shows, music and audiobooks without any waiting?  All three audiobooks from the Divergent series are available as free downloads to anyone with a Worcester Public Library Card! 

Hoopla is like Netflix for libraries—only it provides more than just streaming movies.  All you need is a valid Worcester Public Library Card and you can stream movies and listen to books and music using a computer, tablet or smartphone.  Simply visit the library’s webpage, click on “Digital Downloads” and “Hoopla” to get started.  You will need to create a log on.  To use the service from your mobile device download the Hoopla app from iTunes or Google Play.
