hoopla’s Bonus Borrows Collection Available in May!
What happens when you’ve maxed out your hoopla borrows for the month? hoopla Digital comes to the rescue with their quarterly Bonus Borrows Collection!
In order to provide relief to libraries and more content to patrons, hoopla Digital has curated the hoopla Bonus Borrows Collection, which will be available for one month each quarter of the year.
The hoopla Bonus Borrows Collection includes hundreds of top titles! But the best part is each patron will be debited ZERO borrows when they borrow any of the included titles! Bonus Borrows do not use any of your six monthly borrows.
In addition to these titles, patrons will also continue to have access to hoopla’s full collection of over 750,000 eBooks, audiobooks, movies, TV shows, music, comics, and more.
The Bonus Borrows Collection is available May 1-31, 2022.
