Cheshire Library is excited to announce the availability of thousands of movies, television shows, music albums and audiobooks, all available for mobile and online access – all you need is a valid library card!

Cheshire Library card holders can download the free hoopla digital mobile app or visit hoopladigital.com to begin enjoying thousands of titles – all available for streaming or temporary downloading to your smartphone, tablet & computer.

Features: Simple sign-up & easy-to-use interface, no waiting to borrow popular movies, TV shows, albums or audiobooks. And hoopla digital’s automatic return feature eliminates late fees.

You Will Be Allowed to Borrow 5 Titles Each Month*

Video lends for 3 days
Music lends for 7 days
Audiobooks lend for 21 days

*We are limiting the number of items you can borrow to FIVE per month for any combination of video, TV, music, and audiobooks.  We anticipate heavy use of this service, and our funding for hoopla is limited.  We are charged each time a patron borrows an item, and we don’t want to run out of funds before the end of the fiscal year!  If you try to go over your limit, or our funds are used up for the month, you’ll see a message that says the item is not available. 

hoopla adds new titles throughout the month.  Unlike most library ebook services, all titles are always available to multiple users at the same time.  You can browse through the available titles in each format, or use the search bar to look for a specific title.


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 or extension for your internet browser. Once you have downloaded the app to your device(s) and/or clicked on the hoopla digital link on the homepage of our website, you will be prompted to enter your email address, a password, your library card 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.

Once you borrow a title on one device it is automatically available via all devices with the hoopla digital app and via your PC web browsers (IE 8+, Firefox 12+, Safari 5+, Chrome 19+)

Within the hoopla app, you can access Cheshire Library news via our news feed; this will help you stay aware of what’s going on at our library

When using hoopla you will be able to begin streaming the 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)

You are able to 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
