The library currently subscribes to a service called Kanopy which provides a variety of streaming movies for all ages.  It includes feature films, TV series, educational content, material that supports equity, diversity, and inclusion, as well as rich kids content.  Library customers have 5 credits to use each month. Each credit is good for either one film or one season of a TV series for 72 hours of access.  Kanopy Kids and Great Courses are available for a longer period of time and do not count against your credits.

Parental Controls. Just like libraries that circulate feature films in their physical collections, Kanopy includes movies from around the world that may be appropriate for adult audiencesIf you log in with your account, you can use the pull down menu where you see your name and choose Parental Controls. Then, any devices you are logged into can be set to only access Kanopy Kids. That limits access to any users of those devices to the content for kids until you enter a PIN on that device to re-activate access to the entire platform.
You can find Kanopy on our Digital Resources page.
