AUSTIN, Minn. — A new service is allowing a local library to offer its resources to more people and they don’t even have to walk through the doors.
The Austin Public Library is offering hoopla digital services.
People can stream music, watch videos and audio books right from home.
Library leaders say it’s a different format for people to use the libraries resources.
“I think it’s another format for us,” Austin Public Library Director Ann Hokanson said. “Just like when we moved away from LP’s for music to CD’s. It’s just a way to deliver the same great content.”
She adds Austin was the first public library in Minnesota to offer this type of service.
