Hoopla: all about the platform, how it works, and what it offers

Hello! This week is my spring break, and I’m spending a few days with my family at the coast, which is fun. It’s the Oregon coast, so pretty cold and windy, but it’s nice to get away from home for a bit. I was able to walk on the beach earlier today, which was amazing, and now I’m happy to be here with another blog post!

Today, I’m going to be talking about a platform for ebooks, audiobooks, and more called Hoopla! It’s free through your local library, and if your library has it, then all you need to sign up is a library card. So, I’m going to get right into this post all about the platform!

10 places I want to go when COVID is over and we can travel again

Exactly one year ago today I got the news that my school was closing for two weeks. Like a lot of other people, my first thought was “I guess I’m getting an extra long spring break.” I definitely never would have thought that a year later, we would still be in the middle of a global pandemic, still naviguating life during COVID.

I love traveling, and that is one thing that I have not been able to do because of COVID. So, I decided to make a list of 10 places in the world I want to go when COVID is over and it’s safe to travel again, whenever that will be. And maybe I can consider this a travel bucket list, that I can look at in twenty years. Anyways, without further ado, I’m going to get into the list of 10 places in the world I want to travel to someday!
