About Hoopla


Hoopla provides streaming movies, TV shows, music, eBooks, audiobooks and comics to your browser or mobile device. Android and Apple apps are available from Google Play and the App Store. Register for an account or log in here. If you are having trouble logging into your account or need to update your account information, please check here. Before installing Hoopla’s app from Google Play, the App Store, or the Amazon Appstore on a mobile device, please check this help page to make sure your device is up to date enough to use the app.

Hoopla content is checked out for different lengths of time depending on the type of medium:

  • Music: 7 days
  • TV shows and movies: 3 days
  • Audiobooks: 21 days
  • eBooks and comics: 3 weeks
  • BingePasses: 7 days

Hoopla’s movies and TV series include older feature films and TV series as well as documentaries, independent films and a wide selection of children’s programming. Some Hoopla content is not available to Lincoln City Libraries accounts. If you are searching in Hoopla without being logged in, you may see titles that are not part of our Hoopla collection. Hoopla’s content is licensed for use only in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. Accessing Hoopla outside of those countries, or by using a phone with a SIM card from another country, will not work. 

New From Hoopla: BingePasses

A Hoopla BingePass gives you 7 days of unlimited access to a variety of online content with a single borrow. Hoopla securely logs you into the BingePass partner website or app for you to explore all they offer, directly through their platform. Hoopla does not share any of your personal information with BingePass partners.

Once you borrow a BingePass, you can access it immediately. To access the content again, you can find your BingePass through the Borrowed section of My Hoopla. When the lending period is up, you’re welcome to borrow the same BingePass again. BingePasses do count toward your monthly borrowing limit.

Hoopla and Lincoln City Libraries have no control over the content offered by a BingePass partner. It’s possible some content will be for mature audiences. Hoopla and Lincoln City Libraries are not responsible for any BingePass partner content. BingePasses will not work on Lincoln City Libraries’ catalog computers.

Due to Lincoln Public Schools restrictions, Library OneCard (formerly ConnectEd) accounts cannot be used to access Hoopla.

You are limited to four checkouts per month. Limits are reset at the 1st of each month.
