Once downloaded, your hoopla rentals are instantly available on all of your hoopla-enabled devices. No need to deal with multiple copies, or differing formats. Rentals can be enjoyed on the go, with the help of Apple products such as the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, Android devices, and Kindle Fire HDX tablets. Watch hoopla through the web on your laptop or desktop computer. If you have an HDMI cable, and compatible set, you can easily enjoy your content on your television screen.

Free with Library Card and PIN

It's much like having your own Oak Park Public Library right in your home. You don't need any special subscriptions or monthly payments to enjoy all that hoopla has to offer. With your library account number, PIN, and an email address, you can visit oppl.org/hoopla to sign up and start enjoying your favorite movies, TV episodes, audiobooks and music.

Sleek, Simple Interface

Hoopla makes digitally borrowing titles simple and easy. Once registered, you can get right to browsing, and with the simple scroll-through interface. Surf through a wealth of titles, and use the search function to find your favorite titles in seconds. Borrowed titles are automatically returned when your lending period is over, and you can easily keep track of your borrowing allotment, eight items each month.

Content For Everyone

Hoopla features content from nearly any genre or time period. If you've made your way through all the modern hit films, try a foreign language film, a documentary, or even take an exercise and fitness film along with you for a workout. Check out some hit pop tunes, and the laugh it up with some classic stand-up comedy. If you're in the mood for a book, hoopla offers audiobooks, too.


That's right - Hoopla is completely ad-free. That means you can enjoy your favorite films, television programs, music, and audiobooks without commercial interruptions.

A Few Favorites

The Who - Who's Next

This classic rock n' roll album features some of The Who's most memorable tracks, such as "Baba O'Reily" and "Won't Get Fooled Again." The impeccable vocals of Roger Daltry, thunderous chords of Pete Townshend, lighting-fast drumming of Keith Moon and pounding drums of Keith Moon will keep you listening again and again.

The Office (U.K.)

Ricky Gervais' critically acclaimed television series chronicles the chringe-inducing, day-to-day events at paper company Wernham Hogg. The inspiration for the beloved U.S. television series of the same name, this classic British series showcases some of the best deadpan humor seen on television.

Orange Is the New Black

This audiobook-version of the story of author Piper Kerman's time in a Connecticut detention facility, read by Cassandra Campbell, gives a compelling insight into the realities of a woman's prison. This engaging story is also the inspiration for the new hit television series of the same name.
