hoopla: New Streaming Service Free With Your Library Card!

hoopla is a brand new eMedia service available to St. Louis County Library customers today! Through it you will be able to instantly stream movies, television shows, music and audiobooks to tablets, phones and computers with internet access (data rates may apply). All items are available immediately.
 
All St. Louis County Library cardholders who live within the St. Louis Metropolitan Statistical Area can use the service.
 
To access the service using a computer, you will find links to the site on our eMedia page (www.slcl.org/emedia) under the eVideos, eAudiobooks and eMusic tabs or you can go directly to www.hoopladigital.com. iOS and Android users will need to first install the hoopla app from the App Store or Google Play store. The Kindle Fire App is not yet available, but is coming soon.
 
To get started, you will first need to sign up for an account using your library card number, PIN and email address. Once your account is created, you can borrow titles. When you find a title to checkout, it's as easy as clicking the borrow button and hitting play. To stream video content on a computer, the WideVine plug-in is required (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/widevine).
 
You can borrow up to 10 titles per month (any combination). The lending period for each format is as follows:
  • Movies and Television - 2 or 3 days
