Wintertime is a good time to catch up on documentary-watching, and the ACPL has just made it easier for its patrons to access videos like these for free. The new media service is called hoopla, and you just need a library card to get started.
If you enjoy watching documentaries, you will be pleased to learn that the hoopla media library currently includes 17 titles by the acclaimed PBS documentarian Ken Burns. Ken Burns has been making films for more than 30 years about topics ranging from baseball to the great wars. Two of my favorites are pictured here: Jazz and The National Parks, both available today to download or stream on digital devices.
There are also feature films and television shows available in the hoopla catalog. Library card holders may borrow up to six digital titles per month with hoopla. These online checkouts will not count toward physical DVD or Blu-Ray checkout limits. Happy watching (and learning).
