Fall River Public Library

Fall River Public Library Adds to At-Home Collection

Fall River Public Library has just expanded its free service HOOPLA, which offers eBooks, audiobooks, graphic novels, streaming music, and streaming video. Now, instead of five free downloads a month from Hoopla, patrons will get seven.

To access Hoopla, visit (or follow the link from the library’s web page) and sign in with your library card to create an account. You can start borrowing immediately and read or listen right from your computer. You can also download the free app for Android or Apple to use Hoopla from your phone or tablet. Many streaming devices, such as Roku, are also compatible with it.

Overdrive is another option available to members of any SAILS library. Overdrive eBooks and audiobooks can be accessed from a desktop or laptop computer. Visit We recommend downloading the free app Libby if you’ll be using Overdrive on a phone or tablet. Some content in Overdrive is only available to members of certain libraries. We just added some new titles for Fall River patrons, so be sure to sign in to check out what’s new!



In times like these, it’s more important than ever to stay engaged, entertained, and up-to-date on our community. Remember that you can read this month’s issue, and every issue we’ve ever published, for free online. Be sure to share with your friends and family!
