Ruth Enlow Library Offers hoopla digital to Patrons

The Ruth Enlow Library has added hoopla digital – a unique digital entertainment/media service – to its online resources for patrons. This service provides thousands of movies, television shows, music albums, eBooks, audiobooks, comics, and graphic novels – all available for mobile and online access with a valid library card.

Ruth Enlow Library card holders can download the free hoopla digital mobile app on their Android or IOS device or visit to begin enjoying thousands of titles – from major Hollywood studios, record companies and publishers – available to borrow for instant streaming or temporary downloading to their smartphones, tablets, and computers.

 hoopla digital has a simple sign-up and attractive, easy-to-use interface, so it’s easy to get to your listening and viewing experience,” said Director Thomas Vose. “There’s also no waiting period to borrow popular items, and hoopla digital’s automatic return feature eliminates late fees. The checkout limit is four items per cardholder per month.”

To access the system on mobile devices, patrons should visit or download the free hoopla digital app from the App Store on their Android or IOS device. Then they can simply sign up to get started. There is no need to download an app or extension for an Internet browser.

Funding for this service is provided by the Western Maryland Regional Library, the regional resource center for the public libraries of Allegany, Garrett, and Washington Counties.


For additional information, patrons should contact their local library branch or call the main library at 301-334-3996.
