Staff Picks (As of 4/8/2020) -
Our library staff has selected Hoopla movies, TV series and audiobooks for you to enjoy during the pandemic. The selections include movies that will lift your mood, let you lose yourself in a stranger world or alternative to "kids' movies"that parents can enjoy with children, TV series that Concord loves (or will), and movies set in small space but with a big story.
Hoopla is another digital media service made available to Concord patrons by the Library. It provides free access to thousands of movies (at least 2 years old), TV shows, music albums and audiobooks that can be streamed or downloaded on your computer, tablet or smart phone. There is no waiting list and titles are always available.
Hoopla is available on Apple TV (4th generation or above) and Amazon Fire TV.
Hoopla also supports Amazon Alexa. Watch a short video on how it works.
With no wait lists, hoopla content is always available, and with these new additions your patrons will have the ability to stream over 40,000 movie and TV selections directly through their televisions.
