Newport Public Library Discontinuing Hoopla

The Newport Public Library is announcing the discontinuation of Hoopla, a digital streaming service that provides access to eBooks and eAudiobooks, effective July 1, 2024. The decision to discontinue Hoopla was made after careful consideration of the library's budgetary constraints and sustainability goals.

Despite its popularity among patrons, the increasing costs associated with maintaining access to Hoopla's extensive catalog have rendered the service financially unsustainable for the library. The Library understands that Hoopla has been a valuable resource for many of our patrons, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this decision. However, we remain committed to providing accessible and diverse digital resources to our community.

While Hoopla may no longer be available, Newport Public Library would like to remind patrons that they can still access a wide range of eBooks and eAudiobooks through Library2Go, available through the Libby app. Library2Go offers a vast selection of digital materials that can be borrowed and enjoyed from the comfort of home, ensuring continued access to high-quality literary content for all library users. We encourage our patrons to explore the offerings available through Library2Go and to reach out to our staff for assistance in navigating the platform. We remain dedicated to serving the needs of our community and providing access to information and entertainment in a cost-effective and sustainable manner.

For more information and updates on digital resources available from Newport Public Library, patrons are encouraged to visit the library's website or contact library staff directly at 541-265-2153 or email reference@newportlibrary.org. The Library remains committed to fostering a culture of lifelong learning and literacy within the community, and looks forward to continuing to serve its patrons through innovative and accessible means.
