Stream and Download Movies, TV Shows, Audiobooks and eBooks Using Your Library Card Hoopla is a program that allows East Palestine Memorial Public Library patrons to use their library account to electronically borrow movies, TV episodes, music, ebooks, and audiobooks, and access them from any compatible device. Unlike other streaming audio and video services, patrons do not pay a monthly subscription fee making hoopla the first app of its kind. The app is designed for users of all ages and skill levels, and is as easy to navigate as the library shelves. Best of all, with mobile devices, hoopla allows you to take the library with you wherever you go. Patrons who have a 4-digit barcode will need to update their card at the library. Stop by the library to get your new card before using this service. Mack, our Guiding Ohio Online trainer, will be available to help you set up your account, and to answer questions about using hoopla. Call the library at 330-426-3778 to make an appointment.
