The Dover Public Library is excited to announce a new digital media download service, called “Hoopla”, for library cardholders. Thousands of movies, television shows, comics, music albums, eBooks and audiobooks are now available to download or stream, for free, through the library’s new partnership with “hoopla digital” – all you need is a valid library card!
Beginning July 6, 2015, Dover Public Library cardholders can download the free “hoopla digital” mobile app on their Android or IOS device or visit https://www.hoopladigital.com to begin enjoying over 300,000 titles – from major Hollywood studios, record companies and publishers – available to borrow for instant streaming or temporary downloading to your smartphone, tablet, or computer. “hoopla digital” has a simple sign-up process and an attractive, easy-to-use interface, so it’s easy to get to your listening and viewing experience. There’s also no waiting to borrow popular movies, TV shows, albums or digital books. And the service’s automatic return feature eliminates any late fees.
To access the system on your mobile device, you will need to first download the free “hoopla digital” app from the App Store on your Android or IOS device. (There is no need to download an app if you’ll be using a computer.) Once you have downloaded the app to your device(s), and/or clicked on the “hoopla digital”link on our website http://library.dover.nh.gov, you will be prompted to enter your email address, a password, your library card barcode number, and your library card PIN number. The system will validate that you are in good standing with the library, so that you may begin to browse, borrow, and enjoy the content. You will be able to begin streaming content immediately. You can also download content to view at a later date (in case you won’t have Wi-Fi on that camping trip).
Once you borrow a title on one device, it is automatically available on all devices with the “hoopla digital” app and via your PC web browser (IE 8+, Firefox 12+, Safari 5+, Chrome 19+). You will be allowed to borrow a maximum of eight (8) titles each month. Video lends for 72 hours, music lends for 7 days, and audiobooks and eBooks lend for 21 days. You may access/view/listen to borrowed content as often as you want during the checkout period and you can return any borrowed title whenever you want.
To learn more about this exciting new offering, call our librarians at 603-516-6050. We hope library patrons will enjoy this new service and take advantage of all the new content now available to you through the Dover Public Library!
