Public libraries in Chicago, suburbs offering online streaming

The service is called hoopla and it’s available through a mobile app or web browser at the Chicago Public Library and 23 suburban libraries. It first came online last year and is now in 300 libraries nationwide, […] Hoopla officials say they charge a fee each time an item is used, from 99 cents to $2.99. The library pays the fee, so it’s free to a cardholder — just enter an identification number on the library web site to access a catalog of books, movies, music and audio books. The company plans to add e-books at a later date. – Bob McCoppin, Chicago Tribune http://ift.tt/1nHjKB4
