What’s HOOPLA?

HOOPLA is a FREE digital service that allows you to check out movies, music and audio books from a collection of hundreds of thousands of titles, with NO WAITING. That's right! No holds or overdue fines, just instant access. (Finkelstein Library cardholders only.)


HooplaHere’s how it works:

HOOPLA operates in the cloud, meaning once you create a brief account you can stream titles to any internet-enabled device.  You can stream directly to your PC and there are HOOPLA apps for iOS (iPhones, iPads) and Android (smartphones and tablets).
