How does a BingePass work?
BingePasses are available to Bethlehem cardholders and will count as just one of your 10 monthly borrows in Hoopla.
After you borrow a BingePass, you can access the content immediately. The content is available to you for seven days. To access it again, you can find your BingePass in the Borrowed section of My Hoopla.
Once you’ve borrowed a BingePass, you’ll be logged into the BingePass partner website or app where you can explore all they offer, directly through their platform.
To access Hoopla, as well as our other digital collections, visit www.bethlehempubliclibrary.org and click on the “eContent” button.
