Hoopla FAQ

Elkhart Public Library (EPL) has thousands of movies, TV, music albums, comic books and audiobooks for mobile and online access! We have partnered with hoopla digital to bring you content for streaming or download. All you need is a valid EPL Resident or Non-Resident library card!

Just download the free hoopla digital mobile app on your Android or iOS device, or visit http://hoopladigital.com to begin enjoying thousands of titles. All available to borrow for instant streaming or temporary download to your smartphone, tablet and computer.

Hoopla digital’s simple sign-up and attractive, user friendly interface makes it easy to access. There is no waiting to borrow popular movies, TV shows, albums or audiobooks. And with hoopla digital’s automatic return feature there are no late fees.

To access the system on your mobile device, you will first need to download the FREE hoopla digital app from the App Store on your Android or iOS device. There is no need to download an app or extension for your Internet browser.

Once you have downloaded the app to your device(s) and/or clicked on the hoopla digital link on our website http://www.myepl.org, you will be prompted to enter your email address, a password, your library card number, and your library card PIN number. Once the system validates that you are in good standing with the Library you can begin to browse, borrow, and enjoy!

Come see what all the hoopla’s about:

  • Once you borrow a title on one device it is automatically available via all devices with the hoopla digital app and via your PC web browsers (IE 8+, Firefox 12+, Safari 5+, Chrome 19+).
  • When using hoopla you will be able to begin streaming the content immediately. You can also download content to view at a later date (in case you won’t have Wi-Fi on that camping trip).
  • You can borrow up to a total of 6 titles each month. Once that limit is reached, you won’t be able to borrow more until the next month.
    • Ebook and comic loans are 21 days
    • Video loans are 72 hours
    • Music loans are 7 days
    • Audiobook loans are 21 days
  • You can also view and listen to borrowed content as often as you want during the checkout period. You can return a title whenever you want. When you click on the Borrow button it will count towards your 6 item limit for the month, so be careful when choosing items!

We hope you enjoy this new service and encourage you to share your experience on our Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/myEPL) and Twitter (http://twitter.com/myepl) pages!
