Good news for anyone who borrows digital materials from Dayton Metro Library – for the month of February, the number of items that can be checked out from the Hoopla digital collection is doubled! Patrons can download or stream 40 movies, TV shows, music albums, digital comics, audiobooks or eBooks, instead of 20.
The Library’s digital collection continues to grow in popularity. Hoopla offers thousands of titles from major Hollywood studios and record companies for downloading or instant streaming on smartphones, tablets and computers, free of charge. A Dayton Metro Library card is needed to access the service from the Library’s website at DaytonMetroLibrary.org.
“The number of checkouts in Hoopla increased by over 50% in 2016,” said Jean Gaffney, Acquisitions & Collection Development Manager. “We expect to see another surge in use during February with Double Your Downloads, especially during cold weather when people are eager for books, movies and other comfortable, free entertainment at home.”
Library staff is available to help anyone learn how to download and use the digital collection. For more information call (937) 463-BOOK.
