Library Introduces New Tech. Program

Posted: Updated:

The Library of Hattiesburg, Petal and Forrest Co. has a new program.

It is called Hoopla. It gives library borrowers the chance to download motion pictures, TV shows and audio books to desktop computers, tablets and mobile devices.

Library Director Sean Farrell said in about three weeks anyone with a library card will be able to access the service via the library's website www.hattlibrary.com.

Movies and TV shows will be available for three days, and audio books for 21. Borrowers will have up to 8 "check-outs" each month.

"We hope everybody's excited about the e-products, and we hope people don't get to the point where they don't want to come in the library, check out a book and say hello, too, because we love having people in the building," Farrell said.

He said the good part is this eliminates overdue fines, and there is no limit to the number of people who can check out the same product at once.
