Stream a wide variety of music directly to your computer or mobile device with your IndyPL Library card. Our streaming music platform is called Hoopla. You can borrow from it without being on a waiting list or leaving home! Top 40, Gospel, Blues, Latin, Hip Hop, Rap - whatever music genre you are looking for, you can find it on Hoopla! You can borrow 10 Items each month. Each album is then available to listen to for 7 days. If you have never borrowed from Hoopla before directions are available as well as a video tutorial.

If you are listening to Hoopla music on a PC or Mac you can only stream it, so you'll need an internet connection to listen. Streaming music can consume a lot of data, so we recommend streaming Hoopla over a Wi-Fi connection.

If you are listening to Hoopla music on the Hoopla app on a supported device, you can download it when you have a connection and then enjoy it offline later.

Here is a quick short cut to Hoopla's music page or explore their full list of music categories. Read a testimonial on our blog - Hoopla Has Your Music!
