EVPL’s Digital Collections feature a wealth of entertainment and information.

Our Hoopla service offers not just books, comics, and music, but various television programs and films too.* As we wrap up an interesting year, take some time to unwind. Some shows are award-winners in the eyes of the industry, while others are award-winners in our own minds and hearts. 


Now streaming you’ll find many series from PBS’ Masterpiece, featuring mysteries, period pieces, and contemporary dramas. If you’re a member of your local PBS station, more titles may be available to you via PBS Passport. Many titles that aired on Masterpiece are also available on DVD in our general collection.

Click here to explore any of these Masterpiece titles on Hoopla.


Hoopla has added some recent pop culture favorites. Reality shows have been an outlet for some to experience life outside their own personal bubble, especially in a year that’s included a lot of working from home and quarantining ourselves indoors.

You’ll find lots of great holiday programming and films streaming on Hoopla. 

You can explore more of the holiday collection by clicking here.


Last but not least, the holidays inspire some of us to put on our chef hats and aprons, or dust off a cookbook of family recipes. Or perhaps you’re just around to taste some great treats. You can explore various seasons of The Great British Baking Show (outside the U.S.: The Great British Bake Off) on your schedule on Hoopla.
