Rockford Public Libraries are now offering more than books and you don't even have to leave your home. This might be the best upgrade in years.

Rockford Public Library just announced the big news about the next generation of their services. You can now read books, watch movies, and so much more - right from your home. RPL is making it possible through an app called Hoopla.
