Hoopla, the streaming service for libraries, is now available for use by Holliston residents. It is free and funded by the Friends. Hoopla has e-books, audio books, comic books, music, movies and TV shows that can be downloaded. The service is limited to four downloads per person per month and is accessed by a valid library card. All the titles in the collection are available at all times and there are no reserves or waiting. The collection changes monthly, and items simply disappear once they reach their due date. The link to get started is available at www.hollistonlibrary.org.
