Just added: Kanopy offers streaming films and TV with a free, constantly updated library!
Using your Arlington Public Library card, you can now access Kanopy—a new-to-Arlington streaming service offering an extensive collection of narrative and documentary films, TV series, kids content and digital courses.
Step 1. Sign up for a Kanopy account using your library card number, accessible on your physical cards or your account profile in the Arlington Library website or app.
Step 2. Find and download the Kanopy app for your television or mobile devices. Streaming in a web browser does not require an app.
Step 3. Explore the Kanopy library, select your film or series and start streaming!
Play credits and viewing periods
Every library card is granted 10 play credits each month, which are redeemed when viewing a film or episode. Many offerings on Kanopy have a 48 or 72 hour viewing period, and patrons can watch their selection as many times as desired during this time without using another credit.
Kanopy Kids content does not deplete play credits, and content from The Great Courses learning catalog may be viewed at a rate of 2 courses per month with a 30-day viewing period for each.
