Ease of use means everything...

Contemporary American life is extremely busy and always on the go. Work commitments, family, friends, hobbies, pastimes, and a multitude of other activities that I cant fully list consume much of our day. Sometimes, the app technology we have access to can be anything but labor saving. I prefer my apps to be as accommodating as possible, that means the fewer steps the better.

Enter HOOPLA, one of my favorite library apps. The HOOPLA app downloaded quickly to my device (IPhone), the registration portion was quick & painless, and downloading content from HOOPLA is lightening fast. I use the HOOPLA app primarily for music, there many popular and smaller indy acts available for download. I use HOOPLA to build a quick and ready playlist whenever I'm faced with a long drive or a long weekend.

Harris County Library teamed up with several agencies, among them Points of Light Foundation and the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, to read to children all over Houston. Here's our group after the readings at McArthur Elementary
