Downloadable Class Sets and Classics

While Overdrive and the Libby App will allow users to check out high demand books with one use at a time (just like physical books), sometimes there can be a wait. So if you're looking for a title that an entire class or book club can read at the same time with no wait at all, Hoopla is the resource you should use!

On Hoopla, users can check out ten titles a month with no wait. Just make sure everyone in your reading group has either a Fulton County Library System card or CLASS PASS access, and your texts are waiting. Enjoy unlimited access to canon classics like Frankenstein, or more modern classics like the Harry Potter series with as many copies for your group or class as needed. With large print a cinch on any tablet and audio versions often available, securing enough copies to teach a text is never an issue with Hoopla.

Educators employed by Atlanta Public Schools can use their Lawson Numbers to access all our CLASS PASS resources, but any classroom in Fulton County or the City of Atlanta can access simultaneous use eBooks on Hoopla, as can any book club. Just make sure to start at the beginning of the month, as patrons are capped at ten no-wait downloads per month on Hoopla.

Why not download some classic horror for the coming holiday? Search our collection for authors like Edgar Allen Poe, Bram Stoker or H. G. Wells to spice up your reading group, or take a tour through the works of Dickens to add to the winter holiday mood. Our collection of classics is always available for Fulton County Library System patrons.
