If you're interested in independent, international, classic and documentary films, sign up for Kanopy, the Library's newest on-demand video streaming service.
Includes films from The Criterion Collection, Great Courses and PBS as well as thousands of independent filmmakers.
Here’s how to get started:
1. Go to cityofberkeley.kanopystreaming.com and create an account by clicking on the Sign Up button.
2. Go to your email account to verify your email address.
3. Add your library card number.
4. Start watching videos! You have 10 film play credits available per calendar month.
Each video will use 1 play credit regardless of length, unless you are accessing videos from Kanopy Kids or the Great Courses, which do not require any play credits to view.
NOTE: Kanopy is not available through our OPAC terminals. Check out a Chromebook at any branch to use this resource.
Kanopy will only work on Chromebooks through the Kanopy app, currently on the Google Play app store.
Kanopy is now accessible through Extras section on the Libby (from Overdrive) app.
