Hoopla Pick of the Week

As you may well have already heard our library, The Southeast Steuben County Library in Corning, N.Y., has just added the new instant check out service Hoopla.

If you have a SSCL (aka Corning) library card, you can check out four items per month from the Hoopla catalog. All items are available instantly, and the available formats include music albums, eBooks, digital audiobooks, comic books, TV shows and movies.

So, starting this week, I will recommend one album per week that you can immediately check out from the Hoopla catalog.

And in the future I will dispense with the preamble and simply tell  you what my Hoopla album recommendation is for the current week!

For this first week, I’m going to recommend:

Digging Deep: Subterranea (2020) by Robert Plant

Digging Deep: Subterranea  is the new album by the former lead vocalist of Led Zepplin.



Have a great weekend!

Linda Reimer, SSCL
