Staff Hoopla Picks: Comfort TV

Staff Comfort TV Picks collage

When everything becomes too much, we look for comfort in different forms of escape television. Sometimes we want to lose ourselves in gentle or dramatic history; other times we want contemporary and edgy. You have access to hundreds of streaming programs through Hoopla Digital with your library card, and below are a few recommendations courtesy of your friendly Advisory Staff. Other viewing suggestions are available here and here, and you can also contact us to ask for titles hand-picked to match your personal taste!
