Richmond Public Libraries Connects with Digital Media Service Hoopla
Richmond, VA – Earlier this month, Richmond Public Libraries (RPL) connected with digital media service provider Hoopla in order to make more content available to city residents. Hoopla currently offers about 600,000 items on its website, allowing visitors to instantly borrow digital movies, TV shows, music, audiobooks, eBooks and more 24/7 using their library card. With new content being added daily, and no waiting, titles can be streamed immediately or downloaded.
“Today’s technology driven culture expects instant access to their favorite artists, shows and movies,” said Mayor Levar M. Stoney. “It is great to see Richmond Public Libraries implementing new services to provide more options for our residents to stay connected.”
Library card holders will be able to borrow up to four times a month from Hoopla without charge.
“Richmond Public Libraries is proud to offer content beyond the walls of the library and make your library card even more powerful,” said RPL Director Scott Firestine. “This will be invaluable to families as they are now able to instantly stream iconic TV shows like Sesame Street to smartphones, tablets and computers through Hoopla’s multi-format experience.”
