The Bayonne Public Library announced that it has moved to a new eBook service called hoopla. The brand offers streaming TV, movies and music.

As a result of this service expansion, the library has discontinued Axis 360, its previous eBook service. The hoopla platform lets readers borrow and enjoy eBooks, eAudiobooks, magazines, comics, TV, movies and music on a phone, tablet, computer and in the car.

On hoopla, there are over a million titles to choose from. New titles are added weekly. There is content for all ages.

Sign up for hoopla by going to www.hoopladigital.com/ on a computer or by downloading and using the hoopla app on any mobile device. All that is needed is a Bayonne Public Library card and PIN number.

Those who do not have a library card, the Bayonne Public Library allows non-cardholders three courtesy borrowings to try out hoopla before requiring a library card for continued use. Library cards are free to obtain for Bayonne and Jersey City residents.

Request a Bayonne library card by emailing Melody, the Bayonne Outreach Librarian, at mtownley@bayonnelibrary.org. Residents can also come in person and receive a library card from the Circulation or Reference Desks. Proof of address is required.

For those who forgot their library card number, PIN, or if you never set up a PIN, they can receive help by emailing Melody, the Outreach Librarian, at mtownley@bayonnelibrary.org. The Bayonne Public Library wishes everyone “happy reading and watching!”
