How many items can I checkout?
OverDrive allows 30 checkouts at a time. You may also place up to 30 items on hold in OverDrive. Hoopla offers five checkouts per month. Digital checkouts do not count against your total print material checkouts.
How long can I borrow ebooks and audiobooks?
Hoopla ebooks, audiobooks and comics checkout for three weeks and Hoopla music checks out for seven days. OverDrive titles check out for three weeks. Everything returns automatically on the due date. OverDrive does allow renewals if no one else is waiting to borrow the title.
Why are there wait lists for digital content?
Some of our ebook and media collections, like OverDrive, are limited to one copy per user. To keep wait lists from getting too long, we try to buy multiple copies per person waiting. Everything on Hoopla is available for immediate checkout, with no waiting, so you may want to start your ebook search with Hoopla. However, not every title is available on Hoopla due to licensing restrictions.
