Couldn’t be more convenient!
I just got this app today after reading about it in the AARP
(hey, don’t judge!) newsletter. I already am using the Libby app to access new and old audio, narrated, and print books free from the combined library system. I know my nearby library is full of movies but I never get them there because I’d just have to take them back soon. This app gave me a chance to have a film for 3 days with no bother returning it. I’d been wanting to see Colin Hanks’ documentary about Tower Records since it was released a couple of years ago. It was easy to sign up and it’s easy to browse the titles, which are divided by genres, and I spotted it there. It was easy to load and watch using my Apple TV and it looked just like regular movie quality. All I needed was my Seattle public library card number to sign up for this system. No downside that I can see for a freebie...5 stars!
Saw it three times . Each time it gets to me a little bit more. Direction was fabulous, acting superb. A little hard to understand because I am an American, but that was to be expected had to use close captioning to truly understand it something about first world war is so unnerving and frightening that I never get tired of understanding it or exploring. This was a play, that’s obvious And I wish I had seen the play. But since I haven’t I will make do with the film. I think I loved it but to be honest I’m not sure. Very intelligent film and thank God for that because I haven’t seen a very intelligent film in years. I hope to see more like this with its human guts churning and boiling over to let me know that mankind still exist on this earth
Kanopy through my library system is my new favorite thing!
My local library system just got access to Kanopy about a month ago. Earlier this week I discovered The Great Courses there and was told by a librarian that none of these videos count against my 10 for the month! I’ve been wanting access to The Great Courses for about 10 years, but it’s never been in the budget, needless to say I’m very excited. I’ve just started a series about how to outsmart yourself to break bad habits and other brain training ideas. I love it! I also love that the closed captioning holds across all the videos.
I’m excited for our next at-home date night to watch one of the 30+ movies I’ve already thrown on my watchlist.
