hoopla!

Welcome to our new service, hoopla!  hoopla provides you with direct access to an exciting world of entertainment!

Simple to use, without the bother of having to return the items you’ve borrowed — and all you need is your Southfield Library card, a web browser, and smart phone or tablet to get started.

The first time you use hoopla Digital you will create an account, entering your email address, a new password, and your library card number.  After that first time you will log into hoopla with just your email address and password.

All items are available at any time – there are no waiting lists! Library cardholders will be allowed to borrow up to five (5) items every month.  It doesn’t matter how many of each type of item you have. You can check out any combination of movies, eBooks, audiobooks, comics, and music, but when you have checked out five (5) items you are done for the month.  You will get five (5) more checkouts on the first of each and every month!

You can borrow titles though the hoopla digital mobile app or the hoopla web site by browsing all available content. Once you select a title you can click on the Borrow button on the title details page. Once a title is borrowed, it will be added to your My Titles menu. From there, you can play or view the title on your mobile device or PC/Mac.
