COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Libraries in Columbus and Cleveland are expanding their digital offerings.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/VlrcsY ) Columbus Metropolitan Library patrons now have free access through a service called hoopla to more than 300,000 movies, television shows and other video offerings. The Plain Dealer reports (http://bit.ly/Z7QOqT ) 400 magazines are becoming available digitally in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County.

Columbus is one of seven library systems in the country to take part in the hoopla pilot program. The others are in Toledo; Charlotte- Mecklenburg, N.C.; Harford County, Md.; Los Angeles, Orange County, Calif.; and Seattle.

Users in Columbus don't download the materials but access up to six items a month through a remote device. The project will also make available unlimited copies of digital books to library patrons.
