Digital Streaming is Here

There’s a new blue button on the home page. Given the success of e-books and audio, we’re adding a streaming video service to our arsenal of literacy.

Kanopy is a streaming platform that you can use on your computer, or you can download the relevant app for IOS, Android, AppleTV, Chromecast, or Roku. Adults can enjoy award-winning documentaries, film festival favorites, indie films, classic films, and world cinema. Kids will find films and TV series thoughtfully curated to help develop empathy, mindfulness, and self-esteem.

To access Kanopy, either click the button on our homepage or go to mysfpl.kanopy.com. Douglas library card-holders are currently allotted 6 play credits per month, and we’ve set a monthly cost ceiling that applies to the entire community (basically it’ll shut down before it breaks the budget).¬†Hopefully we don’t bump up against that ceiling and everyone who wants can use all 6 of their play credits.
