hoopla now supports Amazon Alexa devices!

Library customers will need to create a Hoopla account through their library before they are able to link Hoopla and Alexa. Hoopla audiobooks are available for 21 days. Learn more here

The Hoopla integration with Alexa can be enabled by downloading the Hoopla skill on the Amazon Alexa app and logging in to Hoopla to link the account.

You can now play borrowed audiobooks and music albums directly on your Amazon Echo, Dot, Spot, and Show devices.

To get hoopla onto your Alexa device, you must add the hoopla skill (this is the Alexa equivalent of installing an app from the app store).

The skill can be added to Alexa by searching for the hoopla Digital skill on the Amazon website or in the Alexa smartphone app.
