Kanopy, a new streaming app, free from CALS!

Beginning September 30, 2022, CALS will be adding a new streaming service – Kanopy. Kanopy is a video-streaming platform dedicated to thoughtful and thought-provoking films. Founded in 2008, Kanopy was established to provide academic institutions with essential films that foster learning and conversation. In 2016, Kanopy expanded its services to public libraries and is available to stream anytime and anywhere — from desktop to TV to tablet. And now it’s here, available at CALS.

For the first year we are offering their PLUS Packs. Each Pack has 250-300 titles, and these titles come with unlimited, simultaneous use.

The Plus Packs includes:
Favorites: a mix of patron and staff favorites that spans the breadth of the full catalog, including Joe Bell, Howards End, and Dial M for Murder.
Easy Watching: fun, charming, and delightful titles that engage and entertain, such as My Afternoons with Margueritte, Charade, and Life Animated.
Diversity: DEI titles aimed to celebrate our differences, including Miss Juneteenth, Whale Rider, and Ken Burns: The Central Park Five.​
World Cinema: international titles that span genres including comedy, drama, romance, family, and more. Titles include Transit, Nowhere in Africa, and Downfall.

Patrons can access Kanopy through our library website here, through the Libby app (under “extras”), apps on Samsung Smart TV, Roku, firetv, firetablet, and androidtv and any mobile devise.
