SANTA BARBARA COUNTY The Goleta Valley and Santa Ynez Valley libraries are offering new free digital content provided by digital media service Hoopla Digital, the city of Goleta announced Thursday.
Hoopla Digital has created the Hoopla Bonus Borrows Collection, a list of more than 1,000 top titles that are now being offered free to libraries through April 30. Patrons will continue to have access to Hoopla’s full collection of over 750,000 digital items. Library members can check out up to 10 items per month with Hoopla Digital, but there will be no restrictions on the number of items one can borrow from the Hoopla Bonus Borrows Collection, according to the city’s press release
To access the Bonus Borrows Collection, visit hoopladigital.com and search for “Bonus Borrows.” Library members can use their library card to start borrowing, streaming, or downloading content — including the Captain Underpants series, the Captain America comic book collections, Michael Connelly’s fiction, music by Taylor Swift, and more.
If you don’t have a Goleta Valley or Santa Ynez Valley Library card, you can still get one that allows you access to downloadable services by going to blackgold.org/polaris/custom/ecardreg.aspx.
