Maricopa County Library offers Hoopla service

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Checking out movies, music, and audiobooks at county libraries just got a whole lot easier.

The Maricopa County Library System now has a service called Hoopla, giving you access to thousands of titles from home, with no late fees.

And you can stream them all using a free service called Hoopla.

"Hoopla is a digital resource where customers can go online and access audio books, movies, television programs, and other resources all free of charge," said Nelson Mitchell.

"a great alternative to Netflix, it's free movies, tv shows, and music," said Karrie Romero.

More than 120,000 albums and several thousand movies and TV shows are now available. All you need is a Maricopa County Library Card.

"If they don't have a library card, they would need to get one in order to get the resources," said Mitchell.

You can watch or listen at home from your computer or streaming device. 

"I don't live too far from here, but it still saves on gas, saves on time," said Paul Hilger.

The Maricopa County Library Homepage is linked up with the Hoopa Service, the part lots of folks say they love, no late fees.

"There's no wait for customers; you don't have to stand in line, and even when materials are returned the other great thing is there are no late fees," said Mitchell.

Other library systems in the valley are also using Hoopla, a lot of content on the shelves can now be accessed from home.

"Everything that's available, almost everything that's available at the library is available on some sort of format," said Romero.

But the library will remain a place where folks can curl up with a good book too.

"We will always have books for those of us who like the feel of a book in the hand," she said.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
