Some Public Libraries Help You Entertain Your Kids While You Travel!

We all know most Texas’ public libraries provide traditional library programs, children, youth and adult programs, summer programs, genealogy resources, public access computers with internet connections, and free Wi-Fi. But did you know that a number of these public libraries are also providing a fairly new service called Hoopla Digital. This is a Netflix type service that permits library members to download movies, e-books, music and other entertainment to their personal devices. Up to five may be downloaded each month either from the library or online. The library pays a fee (sometimes a large fee) to Hoopla Digital in order to provide you this free service. So next time you are traveling remember that your child’s travel entertainment may be available from your public library! Towns whose libraries currently offer this service include Austin, Pflugerville, Abilene, Angleton, Cedar Park, Denton, Farmers Branch, Frisco, Houston, Hurst, Irving, Lewisville, Longview, Euless, Richardson, Rosenberg, Humble, Spring, Clear Lake City, Seabrook, El Lago, Katy, Crosby, Cypress, Tomball, La Porte, Kingwood, Jacinto City, Galena Park, Highlands, Conroe, Magnolia, Montgomery, New Caney, the Woodlands, Needville, Fulshear, Katy, Sugar Land, Stafford, and Missouri City.
