Hoopla/Libby/Overdrive

Hoopla provides Norwood residents free easy access to stream and temporarily download thousands of movies, TV shows, music albums, audiobooks, e-books, and comics. There is no waiting list or reserve process for these titles, and no late fees.

Tips to get started with Hoopla:

We've created a simple how-to video to learn Hoopla. Or, you can follow along with Hoopla Help or Hoopla FAQ .

  • You'll need a valid library card and an email address.
  • Everyone can borrow up to 10 titles per month, and each title will list the exact borrowing time period.
  • We strongly recommend downloading the hoopla digital app from the iTunes app store or Android market so you can download content on you smartphone or tablet and take it with you.
  • You can stream content directly to your home computer.

Have questions? Ask Brian DeFelice, the Technology Librarian, or Liz Reed, Adult Services Librarian, 781-769-0200 x110.

Happy Hoopla!

Libby is a downloadable application that allows Morrill Library cardholders to listen to audiobooks or read e-books on your phone or tablet. You can use your library card to log-in and check-out books like you would with the Libby app. Some popular titles may require you to be put on a waiting list.

Tips to get started with Libby:

  • You'll need a valid library card and an email address.
  • Everyone can borrow up to 10 titles per month, and each title will list the exact borrowing time period. If you're also using the Overdrive app, be aware that you get 10 borrows per month between both apps, since they give you access to the same service.
  • We strongly recommend downloading the Libby app from the iTunes app store or Android market so you can download content on you smartphone or tablet and take it with you.

Have questions? Ask Brian DeFelice, the Technology Librarian, or Liz Reed, Adult Services Librarian, 781-769-0200 x110.

The Overdrive app offers the same services that the Libby app offers, but Overdrive allows for streaming video, which currently, Libby does not. The Overdrive app and the Libby app are both produced by Overdrive the company; Libby is their newer release and Overdrive is their older app.
