Library News

Do you use Hoopla? What is Hoopla?
From the company: "Hoopla is a groundbreaking digital media service offered by your local public library that allows you to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, comics and TV shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone ... and even your TV."
By your local library. I like those words. People in Lyon County have access to Hoopla through Marshall-Lyon County Library. Though you can find other ebook services in the Plum Creek Library System, only Lyon County residents have Hoopla available to them.
How do you use Hoopla? One needs to have a library card and an email address. Go to or download the Hoopla app on your smart phone or other device. Create an account with your e-mail address and a password. After accepting the terms , it will ask for your zip code. You then have choices of libraries to choose from. At the top of the list should be the Marshall-Lyon County Library. The next step is entering your library card number. From there, you can explore all the ebooks, audiobooks, movies, etc. available to you.
I am someone who likes to hold a physical book in my hand, but I like knowing I can still use the library digital services to read or listen to books as well. If you are away on vacation, sheltering at home, or just too busy to come in, know that your local library is still there to serve you.
