You may be familiar with digital ebooks and audioboks from Overdrive and Libby, but have you tried Hoopla?

Hoopla includes a large catalog of on-demand ebooks, audiobooks, music albums, movies, TV shows, and comics.  Unlike Overdrive, there are no holds and no waiting lists—all titles may be accessed instantly.

All titles are available for streaming using the website on a PC or Mac. Borrowed titles may be both streamed and temporarily downloaded using the Hoopla Digital app on iOS and Android devices.

The service is limited to Acton residents, who may borrow up to 8 titles per calendar month.

To get started with Hoopla, visit or download the Hoopla Digital app from your device's app store.
