Description[edit]

Subscriptions through public libraries enable patrons to "borrow" (in other words, have temporary access to) audiobooks, comics, ebooks, movies, music, and television shows online.[3] The library pays a fee but library patrons get the service at no extra charge. Hoopla offers associated apps for Android and iOS devices.[4]

Hoopla's parent company, Midwest Tape LLC, is a library vendor of audiobooks, CDs, DVDs, and other media co-founded by Jeff Jankowski.[5] Midwest Tape began business in 1989; its president as of 2012 is John Eldred.[6][7]
