Streaming Video With Your Library Card Coming in March!

Beginning this March, Peoria Public Library will join over 4, 000 other libraries who offer the streaming video service Kanopy to their patrons.  With your library card and the app, you will be able to stream up to 8 movies a month.

Kanopy offers what it calls, ‘thoughtful entertainment’ including documentaries, independent films, the Criterion Collection, Great Courses and more.  The collection offers a total of 30,000 titles  with new films added each month. You have the ability to watch with your favorite apps including Roku, iPhone, Android, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick and Google Chromecast.  Apps can be downloaded from your favorite app store. You will log in with your library card. Instructions will also be available at www.peoriapubliclibrary.org under the Downloads tab on the menu.

The New York Times called Kanopy, “A garden of cinematic delights” while CBCnews calls Kanopy, “A treasure trove…arguably, the greatest assortment of international art cinema under one roof.”
