Hoopla Bonus Borrows

Hoopla Bonus Borrows

Have you used up all of your Hoopla checkouts for this month? Then we have great news for you. Hoopla is now providing access to a more than 1,100 top titles and hoopla favorites on top of your usual checkouts!

That’s right. When you borrow one of these ‘bonus content’ titles you will be debited ZERO borrows towards your 5 monthly Hoopla checkouts. You can access as many as you want,  as often as you want, now through the end of April.

You can access the full list of available titles here.

Or follow the instructions below to find bonus content on your device.


Step 1: Open the Hoopla App on your device.

Select the type of material you are interested in checking out. Video, Music or eBooks.


Step 2: Click ‘Genres’ in the upper right corner.

In this example, I’ve selected Ebooks (in white) and now am clicking on “Genres”. This will give me genre lists of Ebooks only.

Remember, if you want different types of materials such as Audiobooks, Comics, Music or Video you just need to select that category BEFORE you click on “genres” for the genre lists.


Step 3: Select categories that include “Bonus Borrows” in the title.

In this example you can see two of the bonus borrow lists, but if you were scroll down on this screen in hoopla you would see more.

Remember, these are only ebooks. You’ll find the bonus content for other types of material elsewhere (see step 2)

Step 4: Review the list and check one out.

All of the materials you see in these “bonus borrows” lists can be downloaded without using up one of our 5 checkouts for the month. So check them out now!
