is a video streaming service now available to all KFL cardholders. Kanopy offers a wide variety of movies, documentaries, foreign films, classics, children’s content and more.

How does it work? Each month, you will have seven “credits” to use to download movies. Please note that if you watch more than five seconds of any movie, Kanopy will count that as one of your seven selections. To make the most of the service, only hit play when you have found a movie you are sure you want to watch. Once you select a movie, you will have 72 hours to finish watching it or to watch it again.

The children’s content – Kanopy Kids – is a little different. Once you watch your first Kanopy Kids video, you have access to the entire children’s selection for the rest of the month without having to use your credits.

Kanopy works with most devices, including Roku, Chromecast, and AppleTV. If you have questions, please visit Kanopy Support, or contact the library by email or by phone at 207-985-2173.
