To make sure borrows are available throughout the library closure, we have made a daily budget for Hoopla. When the budget is reached, borrowing will be suspended until the next day. You can continue to borrow 10 items a month, but will see this message when the daily spending limit is reached: “Your library’s daily lending limit has been reached for the day, and will reset this evening.” Reset time is midnight Eastern Standard Time.

With Hoopla, Cecil County Public Library gives you free access to:

  • 10 checkouts per month - movies, TV, music, eAudiobooks, eBooks, and graphic novels

  • No holds lists and no fines

  • Unlimited viewing or listening during your checkout period (once checkout time has expired, item will automatically disappear from your computer or device)

  • Over 100,000 titles with new selections added weekly -- new, popular, classic and educational titles

  • Hoopla carries approximately 80% of albums listed on Billboard magazine's top 100 lists, often on the day the album is released (try it before you buy it!)
