You may also read these e-books in your Internet browser at HooplaDigital.com

Hoopla e-books never have waitlists.  However, if the library-wide daily budget cap has been reached, you will get an error message when you try to check out an item.  In that case, try to check your item out again the next day, or anytime after midnight. 

Search for a particular e-book, browse the e-books or check our our staff recommendations for Hoopla. Hoopla also offers audiobooks, so double check that you are borrowing the correct format.
