With COVID-19 numbers improving each day, it is likely that most students will be back in school full time this fall. As we transition back to in-person learning, having access to an in-depth collection of supplemental educational materials is as important as it ever has been. We at hoopla take pride in offering a best-in-class selection of media titles perfect for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) education. Patrons of all ages can browse our STEAM collections in video, audiobooks, eBooks, and even music and comics for materials that will broaden their understanding or just help them study. And we mean “all ages”—the great STEAM media available on hoopla isn’t just for kids. With incredible titles from publishers like The Great Courses and One Day University (see pg. 9), adult learners can dive into a variety of topics with classes and recorded lectures from award-winning professors and other experts. As always, we commend the work of librarians everywhere. Your support has been invaluable to students and other patrons who have been navigating a variety of learning models and other unprecedented challenges over the past year plus.

Thank you for all you do! Jeff and the team at hoopla

New Spotlight Selection

Learning to Speak Southern by Lindsey Rogers Cook Lex fled Memphis years ago, making ends meet with odd jobs teaching English around the world. She only returns when she has no choice, when her godmother presents her with a bargain she can't refuse. Lex has never understood her mother, who died tragically right before Lex's college graduation, but now she's got a chance to read her journals, to try and figure out what sent her mother spiraling all those years ago. Once all is laid bare, Lex must decide for herself: What is the true meaning of family?
