As of June 1st, 2016, the monthly checkout limit for hoopla digital has been reduced from 10 per user to 5 per user.

We understand that this will be a disappointing change for some users, but it was necessary due to overwhelming demand on the hoopla product. 

Our thanks for your understanding on this issue.

    1. Man, this is a bummer! My kids will chew through five audiobooks in a week.

    2. I wish they'd raise the limit back to 10. I can listen to an entire book at work and I usually return it when it's done. I love having Hoopla and want to continue using it. I just hope the limit is raised back to 10. Thank you.

    3. I thought that 10 titles per month was restrictive. 5 titles seems almost ridiculous!

    4. What exactly is the reason for the lowered limits? I understand only allowing a few books to be checked out to one person at a time, but once they are returned, why limit how many more times we can borrow?

    5. The reason for the checkout limit is that the library pays for each title borrowed on hoopla on a per-use basis (instead of paying full price for a title at the outset, we pay a smaller amount each time it's checked out). Due to the increasing popularity of the hoopla service, we needed to put the checkout limit in place or risk not being able to pay for the service anymore. We are sorry for the inconvenience and we are working on alternate solutions to help mitigate the loss.
