Hoopla Digital
Hoopla is a groundbreaking digital media service offered by the Romulus Public Library.

  • Log in with your library card to download or stream your favorite movies, music, e-audiobooks, ebooks, comics and TV shows.
  • Use on your computer, tablet, or phone – and even on your smart TV!
  • There is no waiting and titles can be streamed immediately.

Hoopla has hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from and they add new ones daily. All you need is your library card.
The Value of a Library Card
What is a library card worth? It depends on how much you use it, but even if you use it infrequently, your library card is worth a bundle! Consider this: If you went to the store and purchased a DVD and a new bestseller, you are likely to spend about $50. You can visit your local library and borrow these items for free. In one year, if you checked out one DVD and one book at the library each month, you would save about $600.

The library also offers:
  • Free downloadable e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines ($2.99 - $3.99 each)
  • Free streaming of movies and TV shows ($2.99 - $3.99 each)
  • Free checkout of magazines (retail $20+ per year per magazine)
  • Free in-library use of local newspapers (retail $200+ per year)
  • Free computer access (estimated retail value $350 for an inexpensive computer, software, and internet)
  • Free tech assistance (minimum $25 per month)
  • Free in-library use of Ancestry.com ($19.99 per month)
  • Free help finding information

And then there's our space:
  • A quiet place to read, study, or work (and you aren't expected to purchase something)
  • A place to meet with friends
  • A place to bring your children
  • A place to hear an author speak or learn about topics of interest

What is your library card worth? It's priceless. Visit your library and start saving money.
