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. Only if you have a My First Delaware Library Card or the Super Library Card. These two are restricted from borrowing items considered mature content as follows:

  • Borrowing for Television rated TV14 or worse will be prohibited.
  • Borrowing for Parental Advisory Music will be prohibited.
  • Borrowing for Movies rated PG13 or worse will be prohibited.
  • Borrowing for Comics rated T or worse will be prohibited.

Q. Can I get assistance directly from hoopla?
A. 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 issues 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”.
