So I was browsing through the Toronto Star this morning (I’m a journalist — it’s my job!), when I came across this story about the Toronto Public Library. They’ve just signed up with Hoopla, described as a “Netflix-like service for libraries” gives you access to over 10,000 movies, 250,000 music albums and TV shows as well on line — FOR FREE! All you need is a library card.

 Instant jealousy — and a potential story idea for Planet S, I thought! Why don’t we get this in Saskatoon? The Saskatoon Public Library (SPL) must be pushed to sign up for this service ASAP!

 Umm, no — because it’s already here!

 Embarrassment about my total cluelessness aside (I said I was a journalist: I didn’t say anything about being a good one…), this is very cool. Free movies, music and TV shows, with no possibility of late fees because they’re online!

 Check out the SPL’s page here for more information, and check out Hoopla itself here for an idea of what you could get. And well done, folks at the Saskatoon Public Library — we beat Toronto at something!

 Now go get yourself a library card if you don’t already have one, silly.
