Mad about Music? Check some out on Hoopla!

Hi everyone,

Did you know you can check out music for free on Hoopla, using your Wanaque Library card? I asked Lori, our Senior Library Assistant, to recommend a few albums that are available for download from Hoopla.

Elvis – Treat yourself to some of the greatest hits by one of our greatest musicians. Are you lonesome tonight? Let’s have a party! Doncha think it’s time? (Okay, maybe a social-distanced party.) Get your blue suede shoes all shook up with these terrific songs, you hound dog.

Disney outdid themselves with the soundtrack of their smash musical hit The Descendants. Never heard of it? Ask your tween or teen, they’ll tell you what it’s all about, and they may even burst into song. Lori and Sarah love to listen to this soundtrack and belt out show tunes such as Rotten to the CoreGood is the New Bad, and Set it Off. The soundtrack to The Descendants 2 is also available on Hoopla! (sadly, though, the movies are not available.)

“We love Luke, and What Makes You Country, released in 2017, is one of his best albums,” says Lori. I have to agree – this is one of my favorite albums too.  His songs are upbeat, hopeful and relaxing to listen to. One of my favorites from this album is Most People are Good, but like Lori said, the whole album is great..

Not into country? No problem. If none of Lori’s picks float your boat, I encourage you to browse Hoopla’s music selection for something more to your taste. Classical? Metal? Music like KidzBop for kids? If you’re looking for a laugh check out our terrific selection of comedy albums – lots of laughs by comedians such as Mitch Hedberg, Jim Gaffigan, Kathleen Madigan, Robin Williams, Brian Regan, and scores more.

What if you’ve got the blues? We’ve got you covered there too.

You can check out up to 10 items per month from Hoopla! If you need a library card or want some help getting started, just email us at

Happy listening,
