Frequently Asked Questions

I forgot my login information for hoopla. Can you help?

Yes. Please contact us at 812.428.8200 ext. 1515 or via AskEVPL for assistance with resetting your login information for hoopla. We will verify your library account and then check hoopla’s system for your credentials; we can reset your email address and password for you.

How do I update my PIN in hoopla?

EVPL sets a PIN for all accounts. During our catalog upgrade in August 2023, all PINs were reset to the last 4 digits of your phone number on file; if you had no phone number, they were reset to your zip code on file. You can reset your PIN online. To add or update a PIN in hoopla on iOS, Android, or the hoopla website, follow the steps in this tutorial.

hoopla says my library card is expired, but my library says it is fine, what can I do?

If you have reached out to your local library, and the library card isn’t expired, another possibility is that your PIN is invalid. To get this corrected, you will need to contact your local library or visit their website, then learn how to update it on hoopla.

What is a BingePass and how do I use it?

A hoopla BingePass makes it easy to stream collections of premium content with just one click. Examples are Curiosity Stream and Hallmark Movies Now. It’s the ultimate boredom buster — giving you unlimited access to stream interactive, educational, and engaging collections of content online. Whether you want to peruse the latest issue of your favorite magazine, listen to a podcast, read an eBook with your child, or dive into a new documentary, there’s a BingePass for you.

Once you make your selection, you will have access to your BingePass borrow for seven days. Some BingePass borrows let you explore content directly within a partner’s platform, while others give you access to whole collections right on hoopla.

I have other questions about hoopla. What can I do?

I have a library card with another library in addition to EVPL and want to add their Libby collection as well. How do I do this?
