Streaming Media Coming to St. Louis County Library
On May 5, St. Louis County Library will introduce a new service that allows patrons to instantly stream movies, television shows, music and audiobooks. Hoopla, an eMedia service, will be accessible via the library’s website ( to all SLCL cardholders. Using hoopla, patrons can download and stream up to 10 titles per month on their tablets, phones and computers with internet access (data rates may apply.) All items are available immediately; no waiting list necessary. When the due date arrives, the item will be checked back in automatically, thereby eliminating overdue fines.
Hoopla offers thousands of titles. Movies include documentaries, foreign language films, Hollywood classics and recent releases, animation and fitness videos. Television shows include episodes from Masterpiece Theater, National Geographic, children’s cartoons and favorites from the early years of television. Music selections are also varied, from Lorde and Katy Perry to Broadway musicals and symphonies. Audiobooks offer multiple genres including urban fiction, biographies and science fiction.
