hoopla is asking me for a username and password. Why do I need an account?

hoopla requires individual user accounts in order to access the content, even from within the library building.

Steps for User Registration- if you don't already have a hoopla account-
1) Users will need to register for an account before accessing NC LIVE content on hoopla
2) Enter an email address
3) Select library as “NC LIVE”
4) Enter a library card number or password

Steps for User Registration- if you already have an account with your library-

2) Enter a different email address from the email address they use with your library’s account (it can be a fake email address)
3) Select library as “NC LIVE”
4) Enter a library card number with “nc” at the end, or enter a password
