Library users can download up to ten titles per month and the automatic return ensures no late fees, with checkout times ranging from three days to three weeks. "When we surveyed our users earlier this year, access to streaming content was the top-requested new service," said Michael Colford, Director of Library Services. "Free digital streaming is an excellent addition to Boston Public Library's growing online col- lection, and it is available twenty-four hours a day." The service enables access from the con- venience of your home, local coffee shop, or anywhere - all you need is a library card, viewing or listening device, and Internet access if streaming content. The collection includes everything from new and notable titles to favorite classics for children and adults, including educational and instruc- tional videos, foreign films, and top-selling music albums. The streaming media service is called hoopla and is accessible via the "collections" section of the Boston Public Library website. Library users log in with their Boston Pub- lic Library card and then create a hoopla reader account. In addition, users have the option of downloading an app for iOS and Android devices. All titles are available for simultaneous access with no waiting peri- ods, and new content is added weekly. More information on the digital media service, along with "getting started" tips and check- out guides, is available on the Boston Pub- p- CASH In Your Gold Italian Festa lic Library website at tions / hoopla, htm. Digital streaming is the latest in a series of new online offerings available via the Boston Public Library.
