With the increasing popularity of our digital offerings, demand is higher than ever. That’s why we’re excited to announce the increase of checkout limits for our OverDrive and hoopla collections.
Our primary ebook and e-audiobook service, OverDrive, now has over 10,000 items available for checkout, and we want you to have them! Beginning immediately, we are more than doubling the amount of items you can have checked out at one time, increasing the limit from 4 to 10! In addition, you no longer have to feel rushed to get through your book, because the maximum checkout time has increased from 14 to 21 days!* The amount of items you can have on hold will remain at five.
* If you had previously changed your default checkout period, you may need to go into your settings to set the 21 day checkout period. To increase your default checkout period, sign in to your OverDrive account, click Settings from your Account page and change your Lending Period for ebooks and audiobooks to 21 days.
We have been extremely pleased with the response to hoopla, our streaming video and music service. When we first launched hoopla in December, you could only checkout 4 items per month. Today, we are increasing that limit to 10 checkouts per month! hoopla lending periods will remain the same as they were before at 3 days for video, 7 days for music and 21 days for audiobooks.
If you haven’t tried hoopla yet, give it a shot. You’ll find movies, TV shows, music and audiobooks available at any time, with no holds. If you want more information about the service, visit our hoopla page.
We hope you enjoy even more items from our digital collections with these new limits!
