Why you should love Kanopy

Published on 24 January 2020

Kanopy

Kanopy is our film streaming service. It offers a great range of independent, award winning, cult, international, and classic films and documentaries.  There’s also Kanopy Kids, as well as parental controls, so children can use the service without coming across any unsuitable content.  There are also curated collections: directed by women, and New Zealand film are two particular standouts.

All you need is your library card, your PIN number, and an email address. If you have forgotten your PIN number, you can reset it using the link on our homepage.  You get 10 credits to watch any film of your choice – but as soon as you click on a film to watch it, it costs a credit, even if you don’t finish the film. The Great Courses programs and the Kanopy Kids features are unlimited. 

 You can find Kanopy here and download the Kanopy app here.
