hoopla Digital Music
If you've replaced your library card or updated your PIN/password you'll need to update your Library Settings in hoopla.
Please visit the hoopla site, opens a new window for more instructions or contact Ask KCLS, opens a new window for help.
Titles return automatically at the end of the lending period.
To return a title early, click return now, located next to the date the title expires on the title information page. Please note that returning a title early does not give you additional borrows for the month.
hoopla works on a pay-per-checkout model, which means that the library system pays a small fee each time a title is checked out. Limiting checkouts to 10 per month helps us stay within our collection budget.
If you are using the hoopla app on a mobile device, you can download titles for offline access. If you are using hoopla in a web browser on a computer, you must have an internet connection to access titles.
