What is Hoopla?
Hoopla is a service provided by the Tappan Library to our card holders. It is simple to access and use. No waiting. No hassles.
Search for an item, find what you want and instantly download or stream the content with no wait. Hooplas content includes eBooks, audiobooks, comics, music, movies, and TV. Hoopla content is accessed via the Hoopla website, or Hoopla's Android or iOS mobile apps.
How do I sign up?
Go to www.hoopladigital.com to create your account. You will be asked to enter a valid email address and set up a password. You will also need to select the TAPPAN LIBRARY as your library, and enter your 14 digit Tappan library card number. You will also be asked to enter your PIN which should be the last four digits of the phone number you provided to us.
How do I "borrow" items?
Once you create an account and log into the Hoopla website or set up the Hoopla app (see below), you'll see the instructions for borrowing content.
Can I download / borrow as many items as I want?
Each month our patrons are allowed to borrow 3 items. That will be reset at the beginning of each calendar month.
How long can I keep items, and how are they returned?
Most Movies and TV episodes are available for 72 hours, but some publishers limit borrowing time to 48 hours. The time starts as soon as you download the item.
Most Music albums are available for 7 days from the time you borrow the title.
Most Audiobooks, Comics, and eBooks are available for 21 days from the time you borrow the title.
Returns are managed automatically by the Hoopla website and/or mobile app. You will not need to "return" the items mannually.
How do I borrow and download or stream items on my tablet or smartphone?
You'll need to install the app for your device. You will find the "Hoopla Digital" app in the Apple App Store, Google Play Store or Amazon App Store. Click the icons below to be redirected.
