[ARCHIVED] Hampton library adds Hoopla e-book service, replaces Overdrive


Aug. 2, 2019 — The Hampton Public Library is replacing e-book provider Overdrive with Hoopla beginning Sept. 1, 2019. The change to Hoopla brings several advantages:

  • The library’s e-book collection will increase to more than 300,000 titles from around 5,000 titles.
  • There are no holds or waiting in Hoopla — patrons can check out any e-book at any time, without waiting for a title to become available.
  • The service can still be used on computers and mobile devices, in the same way OverDrive did.

Please note that the list of titles offered on Hoopla will not overlap exactly with Overdrive. If someone has borrowed any books on Overdrive that are not offered on Hoopla, the patron will lose access to those books after Aug. 31. Those who uses e-books on their mobile devices will need to install the Hoopla app after Sept. 1.

All other Hampton library online services will still be available.
