"Kanopy: The World's Finest Cinema, Now Streaming Free With Your Library Card"


Kanopy is a video streaming service for quality, thoughtful entertainment. Find movies, documentaries, foreign films, classic cinema, independent films and educational videos that inspire, enrich and entertain. Kanopy partners with public libraries to bring you an ad-free experience that can be enjoyed on your TV, mobile phone, tablet, and online. 

Play credits are used to play videos on Kanopy. You will receive 7 play credits per month through the Bigelow Free Public Library. Each video will use 1 play credit each, with the exception of those in Kanopy Kids. Once you press ‘play’ on a video and a play credit has been used, you will have 3 days (72 hours) to view it as many times as you like without using another play credit. Your play credits will reset back to 7 on the 1st day of each month.

Creating a Kanopy account is quick and easy! Once you’ve made an account, you’ll also have unlimited access to Kanopy Kids, which is appropriate for children ages 2 and up. Play credits are not required when using Kanopy Kids, allowing unlimited plays each month!

Want to learn more about how play credits work? 

The Bigelow Free Public Library subscribes to Kanopy for our library cardholders, giving you access to a monthly allotment of 7 play credits. These play credits allow you to view videos on Kanopy. Once you are logged in to Kanopy, you will see a “play credit counter” at the top right of your library’s Kanopy platform to alert you of how many play credits you have remaining for the month. Your play credits will reset back to 7 on the first of each month.
