Jan 25, 2014

The library is making access to films and music easier for the public. Beginning Monday, the Central Arkansas Library System will offer instant streaming of TV shows, movies, music, and audio books through Hoopla Digital.

The program comes at no cost to those using it and it can be accessed via www.cals.org or the hoopla app on a smart phone. Lee Ann Blackwell, with the library system, says it is important to mix books with the latest technology.

"You can check out the book from the library and then get onto Hoopla and find a movie title...it enriches the library experience," says Blackwell. 

Up to five titles can be borrowed each month and check out times for videos are 3 days, 7 for music, and 21 for audio books. For more information visit the library's website
