Hoopla’s auto-return feature means no late fees, and you never have to wait for the item you want to become available. Hoopla is accessible to anyone with a NOPL library card! All you need to get started is an internet connection and a digital device.

Please note: Each library card is limited to 8 check-outs per month (any mix of movies, music or audiobooks). The checkout counter resets on the first of the month. Please note that returning a title early does not give users additional borrows for that month.
