Davidson County Public Library Launches Movie Streaming Service Kanopy
The Davidson County Public Library System now offers access to the movie streaming services Kanopy and Kanopy
Kids for its cardholders. Known for thoughtful entertainment, Kanopy offers over 30,000 videos, including documentaries, foreign
films, classic cinema, educational films and award-winning movies.
“Our tangible DVD
collection has been popular for a long time,” said Sheila Killebrew, library director for the Davidson County Public
Library System. “We wanted to expand what we offer patrons to include a digital option for movie watching. Kanopy is
a well-regarded service in the library community and received overwhelming support when our staff tested it earlier this year.”
Library patrons will have access to 10 movies each month within Kanopy and unlimited access
to offerings within Kanopy Kids. Movies from the production companies A24, The Criterion Collection and The Great Courses
are among the selections.
Cardholders can access both Kanopy and Kanopy Kids through the
Kanopy app or through a browser. Most smart TVs and electronic devices, including Apple products, ROKU and Fire tablets, support
the service. Library patrons can begin set up by visiting davidsoncountync.kanopy.com/.
