Move over Netflix, a new streaming video service has arrived in Moreton Bay giving library members access to more than 30,000 films, kids programs and documentaries at their fingertips. A spokesperson for Lifestyle and Amenity Councillor Denise Sims said Kanopy would add to the region’s libraries’ network of online resources. “Our libraries offer a range of online resources.

You can learn a new language, play educational games, borrow an ebook or audiobook or browse thousands of online resources. It’s all free to access anywhere, anytime,” she said. “Now we are offering a fresh service to give library members more options for information and entertainment beyond books on shelves.” Cr Sims said library members could stream Kanopy on any IPad, Android tablet, smartphone or computer.

“Residents can access ten films per month and once selected, each film may be viewed, paused, finished and viewed over a 72 hour period,” she said. “All you need to do is download the Kanopy App from the App Store or Play Store, create an account using your name, email and a password of your choice and enter your library membership details.

“This is more than just offering a new free service to library members; it’s also about social inclusion giving residents and kids who have a medical condition and can’t go outdoors to have convenient access to entertainment.” There’s also Kanopy for kids. Check out the offer here Kanopy for Kids
