Very soon, we will have a new suite of electronic resources, including an unlimited use online video collection (including a huge children’s video library), a massive unlimited use graphic novel collection, as well as extra licenses for Libby Ebooks and Online Audiobooks to reduce the wait to borrow those online. We are looking for some other great resources as well.
Hoopla has been a favorite of many, but we simply can’t keep up with the bills. The library is billed per download, and we have maxed out our capacity. With our small budget, we need resources with a fixed price. Fortunately, there are several new options that are newly available.
If you used Hoopla for EBooks or Online Audiobooks, check Libby. About 75% of the content people used on Hoopla is also on Libby, which is free to us through the state. We will pay extra to have more copies of popular books available to our users on Libby to reduce the wait time.
Thanks for your understanding about this difficult decision — we have to be good stewards of limited library funds!
