The holidays are upon us! The last months of the year offer a number of occasions to gather, reflect, celebrate, and look forward. And however you and your patrons celebrate, you can count on hoopla’s content experts to curate collections of titles that serve as the perfect complement, whether you’re staying home or traveling elsewhere. Each year we look forward to offering this Holiday Look Book to highlight just a small sampling of all the content on hoopla that aligns with the fall and winter holidays, starting in October and running through New Year’s Day. And as always, there are plenty of materials available on the hoopla Resource Center to help you get the word out—about our holiday offerings, the hoopla Book Club and Graphic Novel Book Club, Bonus Borrows, and other collections all year long. hoopla’s Instant collection offers more than 1,000,000 titles in music, audiobook, eBook, comics, movies, and TV, all available to patrons with no holds and no waiting. And now, hoopla Flex—our version of one-copy one-user functionality—allows you to offer patrons the latest and greatest titles on a digital platform they’re already familiar with. Contact your sales rep to learn more. COVID-19 continues to affect our day-to-day lives, as well as our celebrations. Your commitment to your communities never ceases to inspire us. As your Library evolves and adapts to these everchanging circumstances, we will do the same. We look forward to finding innovative new ways to serve you, into 2022 and beyond. Wishing you all the best this holiday season, Jeff and the team at hoopla

What did you think about....

New Spotlight Selection Written in Bone by Sue Black Internationally renowned forensic anthropologist and human anatomist Dame Sue Black takes us on a guided tour of the human skeleton and explains how each person's life history is revealed in their bones, what she calls “the last sentinels of our mortal life to bear witness to the way we lived it.” Each step of the journey includes an explanation of the biology—how the bone is formed in a person's development, how it changes as we age, the secrets it may hold—and is illustrated with anecdotes from the author's career helping solve crimes and identifying human remains, whether recent or historical.
