Bayonne Library Announces New eBook Service

The Bayonne Public Library announced that it has moved to a new eBook service called hoopla. The hoopla brand offers streaming TV, movies, and music. As a result of this service expansion, the library has discontinued Axis 360, its previous eBook service.

The hoopla platform lets you borrow and enjoy eBooks, eAudiobooks, magazines, comics, TV, movies, and music on your phone, tablet, computer, and in your car.

On hoopla, there are over a million titles to choose from. New titles are added weekly. There is content for all ages.

You can sign up for hoopla by going to on a computer or by downloading and using the hoopla app on any mobile device. All you need is your Bayonne Public Library card and PIN number.

If you do not have a library card, the Bayonne Public Library allows non-cardholders three courtesy borrowings to try out hoopla before requiring a library card for continued use. Library cards are free to obtain for Bayonne and Jersey City residents.

To access guides and FAQs about hoopla, visit the library’s Facebook post.

You can request a Bayonne library card by emailing Melody, the Bayonne Outreach Librarian, at [email protected]. You can also come in person and receive a library card from the Circulation or Reference Desks. Please bring proof of address with you.

If you forgot your library card number, PIN, or if you never set up a PIN, you can receive help by emailing Melody, the Outreach Librarian, at [email protected].

The Bayonne Public Library wishes you happy reading and watching!

City of Bayonne

Bayonne is a community that retains many of the elements of a small town. One and two family homes, small apartment buildings, and small business predominate. There is a population of 62,000 people who take pride in their hometown and its history. Bayonne residents and their ancestors moved to the city from many parts of the world. During colonial times and the first century of the American Republic, the Dutch, British, and Africans were the first groups to arrive after the Native Americans. Subsequent waves of immigrants came from all over Europe, especially between the 1880s and the 1920s. In recent decades, sources of immigration have largely been represented from countries in Latin America, the Middle East, and Southeastern Asia. Each group has left its mark on the cultural, religious and political life of the community.
