How to use Hoopla…

Users with library cards that have the Rogers Free Library logo on them. These card numbers start with 22299…

If you regularly use our library but have a card that does not start with our prefix and would like to change it, new cards are $1 at the main circulation desk. If you currently use a card from another library to access their services, this will disrupt your use of their library-specific resources.

  • Click “Sign Up” above, go to https://www.hoopladigital.com/register, or download the app on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
  • Click “Let’s Go!”.
  • Search for “Rogers Free Library” or type in the zip code “02809”. Select “Rogers Free Library”. Then click “Next”.
  • Type in your library card number. Then type in your PIN. Then click “Next”.
  • Type in your email address. Then type in a secure password. Then select “Agree”.
  • Click “Get Started”.

You can borrow up to 10 titles per month. Borrows reset at midnight between the last day and first day of the month.

If you don’t use your 10 borrows before month-end, the unused will NOT carry over. The following month you will still only have 10.

One month out of every quarter, hoopla will offer you “Bonus Borrows”, this is content that will not count towards your borrow limits. When available, your hoopla home page will show promotions and recommendations labeled as “Bonus Borrows”.

Yes, renew options appear 24 hours before your title would return automatically.

Renewing a title will use one of your remaining borrows for the month.

hoopla Kids Mode is an experience designed especially for kids up to age 12. Juvenile cards do NOT come with “Kids Mode” automatically turned on. You must, as a parent, log in and make that change for your child’s account.

  • After logging in, click “KIDS off” on the top right corner.
  • If you would like for your child to be unable to turn off Kids mode, select the check-box next to “Require a pin to unlock Kids Mode”. Type in a PIN that you will remember.
  • If you would like to turn it on just for a little while on your own account, skip the step above.
  • Click “Turn On”.
  • Navigate back home by clicking the “hoopla” logo on the top left, or start browsing the kids section in the search bar.

To return to the full selection of titles:

  • Click “KIDS on” on the top right corner.
  • If you created a PIN, type it into the box. Then click “turn off”.
  • If you did not create a pin, simply click “turn off”.

If your library card is not expired, it is possible that your PIN is invalid. Please either reset your PIN using our Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) at https://rogersfreelibrary.oslri.net/MyAccount/EmailResetPin, or call the library at 401-253-6948 to receive a PIN reset email.

  • Select “Browse” on your computer or, in the app, select a format (Audiobooks, Comics, eBooks, Movies, Music, Television, or BingePasses) that you would like to explore. You can also search for a specific title by clicking on the Search box or magnifying glass and typing in your title(s)/keyword.
  • To borrow a title, click on the title and then click the Borrow button. Your borrowed titles can be played right after borrowing, and found under the My hoopla tab for viewing/listening. Enjoy your selected titles!
  • Borrowed titles will be automatically returned when your lending period is over.
