Our new digital download service, Hoopla, has been wildly successful, surpassing all of our expectations. Nearly 2,000 patrons have signed up to access this collection, and they have checked out 4,469 items -- all in the first month!
Unfortunately, the unexpected high demand is putting stress on our budget. Due to financial constraints, we're going to have to limit the number of downloads we allow on any given day.
Hoopla charges the library each time a patron checks out an item. The library budgets a given amount to Hoopla every day. Once that limit is reached no one can check out anything from Hoopla until the next “day” starts, which is at 5 p.m.
If you try to download an item after we've reached our daily limit, you'll receive the following message from Hoopla: "Our daily limit has been reached. Please continue to browse, add to favorites, and come back tomorrow."
We apologize for the inconvenience, but be patient! You should be able to download after 5 p.m., when the next new "day" begins.
