Library to offer more online content

Austin Public Library is getting digital.

The library is partnering with hoopla digital, an online content provider, to make thousands of movies, television shows, music albums and audiobooks, available for mobile and online access to library patrons.

Library cardholders can download the free hoopla digital mobile app on their Android or IOS device or visit hoopladigital.com  to access thousands of titles from major Hollywood studios, record companies and publishers, all available to borrow for instant streaming or temporary downloading to their smartphones, tablets and computers.

“We are excited to offer our patrons mobile access to this collection of videos, music and audiobooks through hoopla digital,” said Gale Heimer of Austin Public Library in a press release. “You must have a library card to access this content on the hoopla app or web site. Patrons can borrow this content free of charge. It’s digital so there is no waiting period for popular titles and hoopla’s automatic return means no late fees.”
