Technology Fair & Hoopla Digital Coming Soon at the Library

 

Côte Saint-Luc, July13, 2016 – The Côte Saint-Luc Library hosts its first Technology Fair on Thursday, August 4, from 12 to 8 pm.  

Residents can experience all of the library’s electronic services and devices including Hoopla Digital, which is being launched on that day. Hoopla is a digital media service that allows library members to stream videos, music, audiobooks and comics to their computer, or download titles to the smartphone app.

The Technology Fair will introduce library users to other devices and library services such as 3D printers, iPads, Naxos (streaming music), Zinio (online magazines), Mango (language learning resource) and more.

“The Côte Saint-Luc Library has long prided itself on being innovative,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “As the world shifts from physical media to streaming and download services, we want to be there to offer our residents content the way they want to receive it.”

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to add this easy-to-use, interactive and crowd-pleasing service to the long list of services we currently offer to our members.”

To begin enjoying Hoopla, library members can borrow material via our website (csllibrary.org) or they can download the free hoopla digital mobile app on their Android or IOS device. Using their library barcode, thousands  of  titles from major  Hollywood studios,  record  companies  and  publishers are available  to  borrow  24/7,  for instant streaming to computers or streaming/temporary downloading to smartphones and tablets . 

Hoopla  digital  partners  with  public  libraries  across  North America  to  provide  online  and  mobile  access  to  thousands  of movies,  TV  shows,  music, ebooks, audiobooks and comics. Hoopla digital is a service of Midwest Tape –a trusted partner of public libraries for over 25 years.
