Hoopla

PLEASE NOTE: Access to Hoopla is determined by your 'home' library. [See bottom of page for list of which libraries have access] 

Hoopla lets you borrow movies, TV shows, instructional videos, documentaries, music, ebooks, and audiobooks via your Internet browser, smartphone or tablet. Check out movies and TV show episodes for 3 days, music albums for one week and audiobooks for 21 days. All hoopla titles, are checked out and can be streamed any time during the loan period. Items are automatically returned at the end of the loan period.

ALSO NOTE: Central and City of Syracuse branch patrons can have up to six (6) checkouts per month per patron. You may experience an error message saying  “The daily lending limit has been met. Please save this title to your Favorites and try again tomorrow”  when you attempt to borrow a title. The daily lending limit resets at 8:00 PM EST every evening. Once reset you may continue to borrow content again on hoopla. This error message is due to OCPL's contract with hoopla, which has a limit on how many items can be borrowed throughout all the participating libraries.
