hoopla digital Unveils a New eReader for Picture Books and Read-Alongs


hoopla digital and your public library just got a lot better. Today hoopla digital unveiled a dynamic new eReader with specialized features to present picture books and read-alongs for kids. The new eReader showcases content from Disney, HarperCollins, Lerner, Charlesbridge and Britannica including picture books like Pete the Cat and Fancy Nancy and read-alongs like Olaf’s Frozen Adventure and Disney-Pixar’s Coco, which is available in English and Spanish.

“hoopla digital continues to invest in the experience we are offering our libraries and their patrons. Our new eReader shows our deep commitment to books and the experience we are creating for readers of all ages,” said Jeff Jankowski, owner and founder of hoopla digital. “We developed this eReader with feedback from librarians, patrons and publishers and created an experience that really celebrates the work of the authors and illustrators on our platform.”

Read-alongs on hoopla are now accompanied by audio tracks synchronized with the book; text will highlight in red in-synch with the narrative audio. This allows your kids to follow along with the reader of the book.

hoopla digital partners with more than 1,600 public library systems across North America to provide access to more than 600,000 movies, TV shows, music albums, eBooks, audiobooks and comics – all available for instant streaming or downloading to smartphones, tablets, computers and Apple TV with simple access through a library card.

    I’m very happy to see libraries are becoming more innovative in this age of the internets. I will definitely look into this for my two nephews. I hope the app is available in the Amazon app store too.
