The Girard Free Library now subscribes to Kanopy streaming service. With Kanopy, patrons will have access to over 30,000 titles--from informative documentaries to classic and foreign films to cult favorites. The Great Courses are included. In addition, parents will love Kanopy Kids--a curated selection of educational and enriching videos with developmentally appropriate, age-based ratings. Popular picks for kids include Arthur, Babar, Little Pim, and Franklin and Friends.
Available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, Roku, Chromecast, and Amazon Fire, Kanopy is free to Girard Library cardholders. You will receive 10 play credits per month, and most titles cost one credit. Kanopy Kids and Great Courses titles do not count against your monthly credits. Credits reset on the first of the month; they do not roll over from month to month.
To sign-up for Kanopy, you will need your library card number, PIN, and email address. Go to https://girardfreelibrary.kanopy.com and follow the steps to start streaming.
