    There are a million reasons to love hoopla. Using only your library card and an internet connection you can access a massive collection of e-books, audiobooks, movies, and music. Better yet, you never have to wait on hoopla items because they are always available. What’s even more impressive is that the curators at hoopla are constantly updating their digital library with the latest releases. In January the Academy Award nominees were announced and I always look forward to hearing the nominees for “Best Music (Original Score),” so I was elated to find that hoopla already had all five of the nominees available to check out!

    In my new obsession with streaming television shows I’ve discovered that Hoopla helps to fulfill that obsessive need! And I’m not talking about that fleeting kind of obsession that normally happens to me when I’m shopping at Target and I come across an item that I saw on late night TV and had to have, I mean who doesn’t want a “Flippin’ Fantastic” that makes 7 perfectly shaped pancakes at once?!?

    Have you tried hoopla yet? It’s great for reading graphic novels, and there’s never a waiting list for the title you want. You can stream or download 6 items each month. All your need is your Metropolitan Library System card number and a web browser, smart phone, or tablet, and you can keep your loans for 3 weeks. I download comics using the hoopla app on my iPad.

    If you like to listen to audio books, try Metropolitan Library System’s hoopla Digital, where there is never any waiting for the book you choose. You can download 6 items per month, ending on the last day of the month and resetting on the first of each month. All you need is your library card number, and a web browser, smart phone, or tablet, and you can keep them for 3 weeks. I downloaded them using the hoopla app on my android phone. If you don’t have a particular title or author in mind, try browsing some of the fun categories such as “happier family road trips,” “best of hoopla 2017,” or “celebrity readers.”

    This is the time of year when I go into movie-watching high gear. At any other time of year, I can watch whatever strikes my fancy, be it studio blockbuster or weird indie film. But between December and March, I’ve got to get as many of the major award nominees watched as possible before the telecasts of the awards ceremonies, so I can feel cultured while I critique everyone’s outfits and speeches. It’s tradition.
