    Finding Stuff

    Even though you’ll see Hoopla titles in the InfoSoup Library Catalog, they are only select, popular items. Be sure to login to Hoopla to check for titles if you don’t see them in InfoSoup because there’s a chance it really is there.

    Please note that individual libraries in the OWLS system must subscribe to Hoopla; it is not a system resource. This means that only the libraries that have decided to pay the extra money to subscribe to it will have access. If Appleton Public Library is set as your home agency (your Holds automatically go there without having to change the destination), then you should have access to Hoopla.

    Having Trouble Getting In To Your Account?

    If you forgot which email you used to set up your account, or are trying to reset your password, we can provide help. Because limited staff have access to the required interface to do this, whomever you speak with may need to send an email to another staff member. While you may not experience an immediate resolution, depending on schedules, it should hopefully be a timely resolution.
