With hoopla you can read online or download to the hoopla app. If your Kindle has access to an app store then you can download the hoopla app here. If it doesn't then you can read the hoopla title in your browser on a computer. 

To access hoopla, launch the app or go to and click Sign In (if you already have a hoopla account) or Get Started Today (if you haven't set up your hoopla account yet). The Get Started link will allow you to create a hoopla account and will ask you to associate your account with your library. Choose Richland Library and enter your Richland Library card # and PIN.

Once your account is set up you can checkout 10 hoopla titles per month. There is no waiting list for hoopla, the entire library is available 24-7. They have ebooks, movies, audiobooks and music. The hoopla titles can be played in the hoopla app or a browser. If you have the app you can download the titles to playback later without WiFi.

  1. So the answer is "no", you can't access Hoopla ebooks via a kindle e-reader (such as paperwhite).

  2. You must have a Kindle tablet to access hoopla ebook titles. However you can download OverDrive ebooks to a Kindle paperwhite e-reader.
