Announcing Hoopla

With hoopla, you can borrow eBooks, audiobooks, music, movies, comic books, and TV episodes, all from one source!  All hoopla content is available ALL THE TIME - there are no waiting lists, even for the most popular items!

Leominster Public Library cardholders may borrow up to 8 items each month from hoopla.

hoopla Loan Periods
Video Content – 3 Days
Music – 7 days
Book Content – 21 days


As with other eBook providers like OverDrive and Axis360, there are no late fees with hoopla.  Borrowed content is automatically returned at the end of the loan period.

To create a hoopla account on a PC:

1. Go to https://www.hoopladigital.com/home

2. Select Leominster Public Library from the "Choose your Library" menu.

3. You will be asked to enter your library card number.  NOTE:  Our hoopla account will only authorize cards with a Leominster bar code number - these numbers begin with the prefix 28118 or the prefix D69.  If you do not have a card with a Leominster bar code, you will need to exchange your current C/WMARS card for a Leominster card.  You may do this at the Library's Circulation Desk at no cost to you.

4. The next window will ask you to create a separate email username and password that you will use to log in to your hoopla account.  Once you have completed this step, you are ready to borrow items from hoopla!

To create a hoopla account on a smartphone or tablet:

1. Download & install the free hoopla digital app from the Google Play Store or the App Store.

2. In this case, you will be asked to create a username & password for hoopla first (as in Step 4 above).

3.  Once you have created your account, you will be asked to select your library (as in Step 2 above), and enter your Leominster Public Library card number.  Once you have completed these steps, you are ready to borrow items from hoopla!
