We are excited to introduce our newest digital library service, hoopla!

hoopla digitalhoopla offers movies, TV shows, music albums, and audiobooks that you can stream or download on your computer or mobile device. All Lincolnwood library cardholders have instant access to everything on the site—no holds, no waiting. Check out up to 10 items per month, and don’t worry about returning them—your loans expire automatically, so there are no late fees.

The music selection on hoopla is outstanding. There are hundreds of thousands of albums available in diverse genres: pop, country, rock, blues, rap, children’s, R&B, soundtracks, and more. New albums are added every Tuesday.

In movies and television, you’ll find Hollywood favorites as well as lesser-known gems. Categories like “Good for a Laugh” and “60’s Classics” help you find something to suit any mood, every time. hoopla helps you find the perfect audiobook, too, using categories like bestsellers, biographies, short story collections, romance, and seasonal selections.

In addition to these great browsing options, you can always use the search feature to find out right away whether hoopla carries a certain title—and remember, if it’s there, it’s yours to borrow and enjoy instantly!

Like Flipster, hoopla is very easy to use. Follow the instructions on our website, or simply visit hoopla to get started.
