Wish you could stream movies from home with your library card?
Now you can! Introducing Kanopy, a streaming service that partners with libraries to provide films that “inspire us, enrich us, and challenge our perspectives”.
Choose from over 30,000 films. Watch award-winners, international, series, classics, documentaries, and/or instructional films, right from your phone, tablet, and/or computer.
Have kids? They have a great selection of movies, series, animated classic books specially selected for children.
Here’s how it works: You get five movie passes a month, which you can use to stream any of the movies in Kanopy’s catalog. Once you make your selection, you can stream that movie as many times as you’d like for three days. If that’s not enough time, you can use another pass for another three days. Your passes refill on the first of the month.
