Using hoopla

Instant Borrows

  • All Fairfield City Open Libraries' members are entitled to 6 Instant Borrows each month. This limit will reset at the beginning of the calendar month. Instant titles are always available and allow for simultaneous usage by multiple patrons, assuming you have monthly borrows remaining. Unused borrows will not roll over into the next month. You can check all your loans and remaining titles available by visiting the 'My hoopla' section of the website or app. 

hoopla BingePass

  • A hoopla BingePass gives you days of unlimited access to great online content with a single Instant Borrow! You'll receive access to the partner website or app for you to explore all they offer, directly through their platform. It’s a great way to discover new entertainment, try your hand at a new skill, or learn about a new topic.

    Once you borrow a BingePass, you can access it immediately. To access the content again, you can find your BingePass through the Borrowed section of My hoopla. When your borrow period is up, you’re welcome to borrow the same BingePass again.

    Your personal information will not be shared with BingePass partners. They simply know you came from hoopla.

    Please note that hoopla is not responsible for any BingePass partner content. It's possible some content will be for mature audiences.

Loan periods

  • eAudiobooks, eComics and eBooks are available for 21 days from the time you borrow the title.
  • Movies and TV episodes are available for 72 hours (3 days) from the time you borrow the title. Some publishers limit the borrow time to 48 hours (2 days).
  • Music albums are available for 7 days from the time you borrow the title. 

Loans are automatically returned. Titles can be returned before the lending period has expired by clicking the 'return now' button. Please note that returning a title early does not give users additional borrows for that month.
