If you’ve recently visited our main website, you might have noticed that we’ve added a new streaming platform to our catalogue for patrons to take advantage of! Think Netflix but free with your library card. This On Demand streaming platform has over 300,000 Documentaries, classics and Indies Films that you can watch from your preferred device(phone, tv, tablet). In order to utilize the site, you will need to set up an account with your name, email and library card number and pin. There are a variety of titles to choose from and more are added monthly. Similar to when you check out physical books from a branch there is a maximum amount of videos one can watch. Each month you receive ten credits, meaning you can check out ten titles for the month. Titles that you have viewed or watched will be listed on your dashboard just in case you want to refer back to them and the option to create playlists is also available using the playlist feature. What is great about this particular platform is the kid friendliness through Kanopy Kids. The titles available for kids is expansive and parents have the ability to monitor what their children watch by clicking on the parental control option.
