Streaming media has become a go to for many Lethbridge residents during the pandemic. In 2014, the Lethbridge Public Library brought forth the streaming platform called Hoopla to allow anyone who has a library card to be able to access the titles. Jonathan Jarvie, from the Lethbridge Public Library, says they average around 2,000 items borrowed each month.
Jarvie notes there are around 30 people signing up for Hoopla each and every month.
There is a limit of five titles that users are allowed to download per month.
For movies and TV shows, you can watch the content for three days. Audiobooks and ebooks are able to be used for three weeks.
