Can you download books from Hoopla to your computer?
Unfortunately, users who use Hoopla on their computer cannot download books. This feature is only available for the Hoopla app users, on a supported device. And even if you have the Hoopla app installed on your phone or any device that is compatible, the download is available only for a limited time. After the session time is up, you will have to re-download the book.

If you still want to know how you can download Hoopla books so that you can read them offline, here is how you can do that using the app.
Steps to download books from the Hoopla app:
Download the Hoopla app on a device you own that is compatible, preferably a mobile phone. After downloading the app, perform the necessary steps to set it up. Once it is set up, sign into your account and search for the title that you want to download. Select the title tile and tap on “Borrow”. Make sure that your device is connected to the Wifi and then select the “tap here to download” option. Once the book is downloaded, you can disconnect the device from the wifi network and read the book wherever and whenever you want. As mentioned earlier, the only limitation is the time for which the book is available. So make sure to read it before your session expires.
