*We are pleased to offer hoopla digital borrowing, which provides eBooks, eComic books, eAudio, digital music, and digital film with no waiting lists on a cost-per-use basis.  Our annual budget supports this service along with all of the formats available for borrowing in both physical and digital collections.  If our budgeted amount has been reached for the day, we invite you to explore our other digital collections for items available to borrow.  Daily budgeted borrowing resets at midnight.

**Our Kanopy video streaming service provides four checkouts per month for Ocean County Library resident cardholders. Each checkout provides unlimited access to a title for up to 3 days.
