Local residents can now download and stream thousands of items free from the Charleston County Public Library website. The website offers over 100,000 eBooks, 33,000 audio books, 275,000 albums, 11,000 movies, 1,300 television shows, and 6,000 comic books. These materials are available through hoopla digital, which allows residents to check out up to 10 items per calendar month.
Users can access these items on their iOS and Android devices, using the free hoopla mobile app. Best of all, there is no waiting period for popular content, and users can return anything instantly to prevent the late fees that often accompany traditional library usage. Parents with young children are able to limit browsing to content specifically for kids.
This service is only available for those with a CCPL library card. Cards are free for Charleston County residents, business owners, property owners, students, teachers of accredited K-12 grade schools, members of the military, and employees of Charleston County.
