 Reduction in hoopla digital borrowing limit 

In order for more patrons to take advantage of hoopla digital, our digital place for audio books, music, comics and movies, the library administration must lower the number of items borrowed per patron per month from four to three. Each day of each month, our daily limit is reached and borrowers are denied access to the materials that they were looking forward to listening to, viewing, and reading. This new limit will begin on April 9, 2018.

Our budget for hoopla is set at $12,000 per year, or $1,000 per month. This is all that we can afford, unfortunately, because the service is very popular. There is a dollar limit per day, and once that daily limit is reached, patrons are denied borrowing material from hoopla. If you would like to know more about how hoopla pricing works and why we need to lower the monthly limit, please give the director a call at 810-664-9521 ext. 3113
