An early Christmas gift from Cessnock City Libraries – FREE film streaming with Hoopla Digital!


The popular on-demand film streaming service Hoopla Digital is now available for free through Cessnock City Libraries.

Library members can now instantly read, watch and listen to their choice of more than 875,000 titles with their library card.

Content can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform simply by downloading the Hoopla Digital app.

Library Services Co-ordinator, Rose-marie Walters said the diverse Hoopla Digital catalogue takes the power of a library card to a new level.
