Have You Heard About The Resources In This Free Library App?
January 19, 2022
I’m a big fan of local libraries. True story: I got my Virginia Beach library card within a week of moving here last summer! While I normally just use the library to take out physical books to read, last week I decided to investigate some of the digital resources that our local library system has. I learned about an amazing free app that all VB library cardholders have access to, and I just had to tell you about it! I wish I’d heard of this before now.
The Virginia Beach library system is part of the Hoopla app. If you have a VB library card, you can register on Hoopla. Hoopla is an amazing FREE app with tons of e-books and digital books that are available for rent with your card. But besides for just the digital book resources, they also have TONS of great movies and TV shows available for rent! Most are popular titles, and many are ones that aren’t currently available on other streaming services. If you love Hallmark movies, they have a ton of them on there for rent! (I’m so bummed I’m learning about this after Christmas- ha!) There is even a Roku app for Hoopla, so you can set it up on your TV too.
I just wanted to let you all know about this amazing resource from our library- I wish I’d heard about this sooner. I believe that other library systems in Hampton Roads are also using Hoopla too, not just Virginia Beach!
