Kanopy - including Kanopy For Kids

Sign up to Kanopy for free, link to your library card and get access to over 30,000 titles.  From thoughtful cinema release titles to documentaries, from educational kids flicks to informational content, there is something for everyone.

You can stream Kanopy movies to a variety of devices, including:

  • Computers and laptops
  • Apple or Android devices – via the Kanopy app: Apple | Android
  • Apple TVs

You get 30 tickets per calendar month, per library membership.  Kanopy gives you 72 hours to watch each play (48 hours for BBC content) – from the time you start watching.  Unused plays DO NOT carry over, but your 30 tickets are refreshed on the 1st of each month.

Please note: Streaming uses a large amount of data – one hour can be up to 3 GB
