PPL is dedicated to offering excellent content in convenient ways. Sometimes we find ourselves needing to change the resources we provide. After careful consideration, we will no longer provide the hoopla digital online streaming service as of Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 8:00 pm.
Hoopla’s pay-per-use pricing model and pre-selected content is no longer a good fit for Portland Public Library. A more responsible use of our donor-supported collections budget is to increase the breadth of titles and number of copies in our other eBook and eAudiobook service, Cloud Library, to improve quality and access, and decrease hold times.
As always, we appreciate your support of Portland Public Library, and we welcome your feedback whenever we make changes in our collection and services.
For current hoopla users, hoopla will honor the full borrowing period for materials checked out prior to the cutoff time.
