Use your Highland Park Library card to access movies, TV shows, and more with hoopla and RBDigital.


Borrow movies, music, audiobooks, books, comics, and TV shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone – and even your TV!

With no wait lists, titles can be streamed immediately on a laptop or desktop computer at or with mobile devices through the hoopla app, which is available for Android, IOS, and Amazon. Apps for TV services include AppleTV, AndroidTV, AmazonFireTV, and Roku. There are hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from, with more being added daily. 

At the website or in the app, after setting up a hoopla account with your library card number and PIN, patrons can use their username and password to check out. Temporarily, the monthly title limit for the service has been increased to allow for more check outs.

At the website or in the app, after setting up an RBDigital Account, patrons can use their Highland Park Library card number and PIN to check out a pass for a week’s worth of access to one of the streaming services. Once the pass expires, simply check out another weekly pass to keep using the service.
