Discover Hoopla Music

June 19th, 2017

Have you ever seen a movie and really loved the music soundtrack?  How about being able to sample the newest music without paying for it?  Having a birthday party for your kids and need party music?  Are you into meditation or need to relax?  Yes?

The library has the product to meet your needs!

Discover Hoopla music.  A streaming or downloadable media service available to you anytime and anywhere.   Hoopla is like having your public library’s music collection at your fingertips.  Our selection of downloadable music, available for adults, youth and children, can be borrowed for 7 days and you can enjoy up to 8 titles per month.   If you are worried about the content, enable “kids mode” within the settings to filter out any adult content.  At the end of the loan period, the item disappears from your device.  No late fees and no need to return the item to the library.  You can either download the Hoopla app, available in Google Play or Apple App Store or stream music directly to your computer.

There are many categories of music available including music featured on NPR, summer road trip music, comedy, and new age.  There is even a category for New Music Friday where you can download brand new albums.  There is something for everyone.  I personally love to download music to enjoy while running.  There is a category for fitness & workout.  Hoopla offers a great way to explore new music genres with your library card.  So, if you have not tried Hoopla music, maybe you should!
