The Library is Open...

The partnerships noted above are with companies called Zinio and Hoopla. Zinio gives CML cardholders free access to nearly a quarter of a million magazine titles that can be download to eReaders. Hoopla allows those with a CML library card to download from a digital collection of roughly half a million movies, audiobooks, and music albums to their eReader devices.
CML was among the first library systems in the country to partner with Hoopla. And Hoopla continues to grow. Earlier this month, Hoopla made a deal with NBC Universal and is in the process of adding nearly 500 more movie titles to its collection! Here’s the really cool thing, though: When the lending period expires, the item automatically returns itself to the collection – meaning late fees are a thing of the past.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask—librarians love questions. The staff at the Columbus Metropolitan Library would gladly assist Quorum Columbus readers in any way they can! And, of course, if you don’t have a library card, you can sign up online or at any of their 21 library locations. Remember, it’s all free!
