Hoopla for streaming movies and media

Depending on your TV, you can also cast movies from your phone to your TV. Drop by on Tuesday, July 20 to learn how to use Hoopla on your device.


Is the library no longer in

Is the library no longer in partnership with Hoopla? It was our go-to app for Family Movies and audio books as it's offerings were so varied. They carried so many titles not offered by Overdrive. We've recommended the service to many people

Yes, that is correct. HCPL no

Yes, that is correct. HCPL no longer offers Hoopla service. As a user of Hoopla, you should have received an informational email (see below). We apologize if you did not receive prior notification.

Due to the challenges of providing 24/7 checkout access to hoopla, the service will be discontinued on August 31, 2017 at 11:59pm.  Items that you have already checked out will become unavailable at that time.  This was a very difficult decision and we apologize for any inconvenience to our customers.  We will continue to explore alternatives to bring you the best public library digital content.

Harris County Public Library offers a large catalog of quality digital content via Overdrive for ebooks, eaudiobooks, and comics, and OneClick Digital for eaudiobooks.  We have purchased new audiobooks in Overdrive that are always available for checkout to help meet your immediate needs.  The new Overdrive app, Libby, provides a more user-friendly library streaming experience, similar to what you may be used to with the hoopla app.

At Harris County Public Library, we strive to provide the best, most cost-effective materials and services to Harris County. We hope you will continue to look to us for your information and entertainment needs.
