Changes to Hoopla

Our Hoopla streaming service through Midwest Tapes has been even more successful than we anticipated. 
Since we get charged on a per-use basis, we have had to moderate the settings to keep within our budget.  We have made the following two changes:

The maximum borrowing limit has been reduced to 8 for each user.

We have placed a spending limit on each month.  This in turn places a limit on the number of items that can be borrowed per day.  If you are trying to borrow an item and get a notice that the borrowing limit has been met, that means the spending cap has been reached for that day. 

The limit resets at 8:00 p.m. EST.

 We appreciate your patience!
