Newsflash! Commencing the week of 6 December 2021…

Kanopy has been purchased by Overdrive and will soon also appear in the Extras section of Overdrive’s Libby app. The Kanopy app and all the ways to browse, stream, and enjoy videos from Kanopy will remain unchanged. Library members can stream videos in the Kanopy mobile app, on the web, or via Roku, Apple TV, and other Smart TVs. Access via Libby is simply another way for users to discover the service. Existing Kanopy users will sign into Kanopy with the same login credentials they use today. New users who discover Kanopy through Libby will be prompted to create an account with Kanopy.

Kanopy is an on-demand video streaming service that provides library members with free access to a large collection of classic and contemporary films and documentaries. Material includes acclaimed Australian cinema and over 1,700 other movie options including independent cinema, animated films and TV series. There are documentaries and instructional films on science, social science, languages, health, business and contemporary interests such as hair and beauty, food technology, travel and tourism.

Kanopy Kids offers content that helps children develop empathy, mindfulness, and self-esteem through entertaining and educational videos. Categories include TV series, learning languages, animated storybooks, Anime favourites, classic films and family movies.

To access these resources, you will need to create a membership with Kanopy and will be asked to supply a valid City of Gosnells library membership number.
