Another resource, Kanopy, allows you to stream movies. Kanopy has several different genres of films to select from, including Popular Movies, Documentaries, World Cinema, Classics and Oscar Winners. The Great Courses provide series of college-level lecture courses and give you the option to learn at your own pace and on the topics that interest you. Kanopy Kids shows popular tv shows, videos, short films and even storytimes.
Each Kanopy user can view up to 10 films per month. Once a film has been played for 5 seconds, it counts a view. After a kids film has been viewed, you have unlimited access to Kanopy Kids for 30 days. The first kids film opened counts as one of the 10 views. For the Great Courses, you can have unlimited access to one series for 30 days. Each time a different Great Courses is opened, one of the 10 views are used.
To start using Kanopy, all you have to do is create an account with your library card. Click on “Don’t have an account yet?” in the top right corner. Once you input your library card number, it will have you set up your own account that will be connected to that library card number.
