Your Library’s Digital Collections Are Expanding!



Starting on Friday, July 15, 2016, the Fairfield Free Public Library now offers more digital audiobooks, streaming movies, music, comic books, eBooks, and television shows through Hoopla Digital.

All you need to get started is your library card number and an internet connection. Hoopla also offers an app so you can watch films, listen to music, or read comic books, eBooks, and audiobooks on your smart phone or tablet.

To get started, you simply go to https://www.hoopladigital.com/login, click “Sign Up Now” on the bottom, then search for Fairfield Public Library NJ. Be sure to select “Fairfield Public Library NJ,” and not “Fairfield Public Library” (this one is the other Fairfield, up in Connecticut!).

Then you just fill out the form, including your library card number, and you are ready to start checking out all kinds of materials from your computer or smart phone, from anywhere in the world!
