Hoopla is a new online library media collection for adults, teens, and children, that you can use from home with your library card from Multnomah County. Select from a collection of thousands of digital movies, television shows, audiobooks, and music selections, by linking to Hoopla in the e-books and downloadables section of the library's website.
Check out movies and television shows for 72 hours; music albums for seven days; audiobooks for 21 days. There is a limit of six items total per month, resetting on the first of the month.
Hoopla includes new releases by major labels, studios and publishers, all available to cardholders for free and on demand. You do not need to place holds and can check out an item instantly, since streaming media allows for more than one person to check out items at the same time.
Audiobooks, music, and videos stream directly to your PC or mobile device, with download available for mobile devices only, using the app from the iOS App Store or Google Play for Android. Hoopla is separate from your regular library account, so all items return automatically at the end of the checkout time. There are no overdue fines.

1. Link to Hoopla through the Multnomah County Library website: e-books and downloadables.
