We are excited to announce hoopla digital a new digital media service provided to you, our patron, through which you may access and enjoy nearly half a million titles, from six different formats: Movies, TV, Music Albums, eAudiobooks , eBooks, and Comics/Graphic Novels. All in one location, from your computer, tablet or Smartphone!

With hoopla, there are no hold lists, no extra apps or accounts needed or special steps to use it. It just works!

To register for and enjoy hoopla digital for free with your library card, please download the hoopla digital app from your Apple or Google Play store on your mobile device. If you are using a computer, you may visit https://www.hoopladigital.com/my/hoopla.

Please note: When logging in, you must choose the city you live in, NOT the library that you use. So if you live in Shorewood but regularly use the Whitefish Bay Public Library you have to choose the Shorewood Public Library when logging in. Having issues? Give us a call and ask to speak to a reference librarian.
