Changes to Hoopla June 2019

Branch: 
District

Starting in June 2019, some changes are happening to our digital library service Hoopla.


We love Hoopla and we know that our patrons do too. But did you know that the library pays for every single download, every time a patron uses Hoopla? As Hoopla continues to grow in popularity among BDL users, it has become necessary to put in place some cost control options. BDL has lowered the download limit to 6 items per month per user, and lowered our monthly Hoopla budget by 20%. This way we can keep offering this amazing service without breaking the bank. 

What this means for you is that you may see a message stating “the daily borrow limit for the library has been reached and it will reset at midnight”. Feel free to continue to browse and add titles to your favorites so when the day resets, you may be able to checkout. You can always get access to ebooks and audiobooks on your tablets, smartphones, or computers with using Libby/Overdrive.
