Hoopla (Audiobooks, eBooks, Music and comic books)

Hoopla is an innovative new service that partners with your local public library to bring you thousands of AudioBooks, eBooks, and comic book titles for free. There are no costs or hassles. All you need is a library card and a web browser, phone, or tablet.

Why Hoopla?
From Hollywood blockbusters to best selling authors and artists, you’re sure to find something you’ll enjoy. But it’s not just the latest titles – we also have an extensive catalog of educational materials, children’s titles, foreign films, and other hard-to-find content not offered anywhere else.

No hassles.
The Hoopla web site and mobile apps are easy to use. We make an unlimited number of copies available to your library, so there are never any waiting lists. Start streaming immediately, or download a title to your phone or tablet for offline viewing later. We’ll return it for you at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees.

Web or Mobile

You can stream titles instantly through your desktop browser or our mobile app. If you use our mobile app, you can also download titles to your device for offline playback later, where Wi-Fi may be unavailable. Titles are automatically returned and removed from your device at the end of the lending period.

Libby (Audiobooks, eBooks)

Meet Libby. Discover ebooks and audiobooks from Homewood Public Library. Brought to you by OverDrive.

Did you know we have thousands of ebooks and audiobooks? You can borrow them, instantly, free, using just the device in your hand.

1. Get out your library card
2. Open the Libby app
3. Find your Homewood Public Library
4. Search, sample, borrow, enjoy

It takes just a few taps to find and borrow a book. Libby has a ground-breaking built-in ebook reader, and a beautiful audiobook player. If you prefer, you can send books to your Kindle for reading.

Stay signed in for as long as you like. Download books and audiobooks for offline reading, or stream them to save space. Sample any book with a tap — nothing to download or delete.

Try a zoomable graphic novel, or a picture book with read-along audio. All your holds and loans are consolidated on a single shelf. Tag titles as read, loved, hated, wishlist, schoolbook, beach-reading, whatever you like.

Your loans, holds, reading positions, bookmarks and notes are synchronized automatically across all your devices. Keep track of your reading history in the Activity tab.

Libby is the brand new app from OverDrive. We are trying to simplify and bring joy to every aspect of digital borrowing and reading. If you love it, you can use it instead of the OverDrive app. If you don’t love it yet, feel free to keep using the OverDrive app.
