Please join us in welcoming Indian Trails Public Library to our catalog!
This means more books, movies, and music are available from 26 libraries.
Because of this, our catalog will be down for a few days. Make sure you bring your library card to the Library 19 - 21 October (Saturday - Monday) as staff will not be able to look up your account to checkout materials.
New Hoopla and Kanopy Monthly Checkout Limits
As of August 31, 2019, the monthly checkout limits for hoopla digital and Kanopy have been reduced to 3 checkouts per user per platform.
We understand that this is a disappointing change for some users, but it is necessary due to overwhelming demand and the hoopla and Kanopy pricing model. Both hoopla and Kanopy are pay-per-use services, which means that the Highland Park Public Library is charged every time a cardholder checks out an item. As hoopla and Kanopy have grown in popularity, they have been using an unsustainable portion of our materials budget.
We are exploring what options we can add to provide access to the types of content available on hoopla and Kanopy. We already have the following downloadable options for you to explore:
Digital Library of Illinois (Overdrive, and the Libby app) - Downloadable eBooks and eAudio books for all ages
RB Digital - eMagazines
Alexander Street Classical Music Library - A streaming audio collection of choral works, symphonies, operas, and the avant-garde
