3/7/24 notice:

Due to funding, Barrington Public Library has unfortunately made the difficult decision to change the availability of your hoopla Digital collection. You may also notice a shift in the access to your current collection. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are always doing our best to provide the fullest platform possible and are hopeful to offer you an unlimited catalog in the near future.

Why do I see a "daily limit" in the hoopla app? hoopla users have reached the daily borrowing limit. Each borrow is a cost. Due to hoopla's popularity, we have placed a cap on the daily cost to keep our budget in line. The "daily limit" notice may or may not appear each day. It all depends on the checkout activity. The library is looking into ways to remove the "daily limit" starting in July.
