We speak library
with passion

Library is our native tongue; the only language we speak in The Midwest Group. Midwest Tape. hoopla. Dreamscape. It started over a quarter century ago when we began providing groundbreaking products and services to librarians. Our purpose, then and now, is partnering with libraries to deliver the best content to their patrons in the most streamlined manner possible. Through the years, we've cultivated a growing passion for the evolving public library.

What began with Midwest Tape, and our vast content selection in DVDs and CDS, our shelf-ready solutions, and our customer-centric service, has gone through its own evolution as well.

Midwest Tape is more than just DVDs and CDs, though. We started Dreamscape to produce a range of exceptional audiobook and video content for public libraries. Next, we began our hoopla brand of digital services to help libraries evolve and succeed in the exciting new world of online media.

Midwest Tape. hoopla. Dreamscape. Three ways we speak library with passion.

Timely physical entertainment media selections responsive to patron desires and 'shelf-ready' media services that make sense for libraries and librarians - these are what guide our daily dialect.
