Q. How many can I borrow per month?
A. There are 4 borrows allowed per month (by budget). If you check out 4 items within the first week of the month, then you’ve used your limit for that month. It will reset at the beginning of the next month. Note: Even if you check out an item and return it early, that still counts as a borrow towards the 4 item borrows limit. Bonus Borrows do not count against your 4 borrows.

Q. Are there restrictions with Kids’ Cards?
A. No.  Parents are encouraged to turn on the Kid-Safe browsing feature included in the Hoolpa App to help guide their children's borrowing decisions.  Ultimately, it is a parent's responsibility to decide what their child can and can't borrow.

Q. Can I get assistance directly from hoopla?
Yes!  That is encouraged.  Check out their comprehensive help page HERE.  In addition, you can request help while playing a title - at the bottom of each title page on the hoopla mobile app or within each content player on the hoopla website, there is a link or icon where you can report an issue or ask a question.

Using submit feedback is another way to get hoopla assistance. At the bottom of the hoopla website is a “submit feedback” link that can be used to start a support ticket. On your mobile device this is found by pressing the help icons, (!) or (?) under “Settings”.
