New Hoopla E-book Users
- First, visit the Hoopla website. From there, press on "Get Started" and follow the instructions to set up your account. You will need a valid Hampton library card.
- On your device, you can download the Hoopla app from the Apple Store, Amazon or Google Play. (Available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle, Nook, Mac, or Windows, among others.)
- Here's helpful Hoopla information.
- Hoopla allows users to have up to six (6) "Instant Borrow" titles each month. You can renew an "Instant Borrow" title as long as you do not exceed the monthly limit of borrowed titles. The renew option becomes available 24 hours before the title is scheduled to expire.
- In addition to the "Instant Borrow" titles, users may also get up to ten (10) "Flex Borrow" titles at any given time. These work similar to physical items, as holds may be placed on titles that are not available for immediate check out. When searching, it could be sorted as "Instant" or "Flex" under "Borrow Type".
