What is hoopla?  

Free mobile and computer access to eBooks, audiobooks, comics, music, movies, and TV. With hoopla and a valid library card, Mt. Horeb Library patrons can borrow, instantly stream, and download dynamic content via hoopla’s mobile app or www.hoopladigital.com.

Great news! We have added more content to our hoopla collection! Introducing "Flex Borrows!"  

Flex ebooks and flex audiobooks are new, popular items. (Best sellers!) These work a little differently than the "instant" titles hoopla users are familiar with.  Unlike the Instant Borrows, only one person may have a Flex item checked out a time. This means you might have to place a hold on a Flex item and wait in line for it.  
Mt. Horeb Library patrons can now access 3 Flex items at a time, plus 6 Instant Borrows per month!

What is the difference between an Instant Borrow and a Flex Borrow?

Instant Borrows are designated by a lightning bolt symbol, which can be seen above and to the left of the book/audio cover picture.

Patrons may have 6 Instant Borrow (the lightning bolt icon) each month.  Returning an Instant Borrow does not give you additional items. The 6 borrows resets the first day of each month. (Don't worry, any items you have checked out do not disappear, or count against your 6 for the new month.)

Instant borrows are always available for check out. Multiple patrons may have the same title checked out at the same time. 


Flex Borrows are designated by a circle made of two arrows located above and to the left of the book/audio cover picture.

Patrons may have 3 Flex Borrows that can be used at any time.  You can return a Flex Borrow and get another one right away! (No waiting for a new month to 'reset' your borrows.)

Flex titles can only be used by one person at a time, which means they may not be available instantly. Patrons might have to place a hold on these items and wait their turn.
