Tweens & Teens
In addition to digital materials available through The Ohio Digital Library for Teens, tweens and teens should check out hoopla, a collection of streaming videos, audiobooks, comics, and music available instantly, with automatic returns and no late fees. Check out movies and TV shows for three days, music albums for seven days, and audiobooks and digital comics for 21 days. (There is a limit of fifteen items per person, per month, which resets on the 1st of each month.)
Hoopla works with devices that run iOS 6 and Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and above, and major up-to-date web browsers.
Hoopla supports closed captioning of video content where available and/or required.
If you are using iOS 7.1 or newer on your iPhone, please download the newest version of the app to resolve some streaming music issues.
