From the highly recommended shelves of the Video store.

How I miss my video store. I used to walk past the mega, blockbuster movie section.. straight to the cult/highly recommended movies and documentaries shelves. Since my video store has closed down,I have been mourning the loss of rummaging through for a classic. And now Kanopy has brought back the thoughtful back. Even better because it’s online and can provide so much more than could be housed in a physical space... and it’s FREE!! I’m in heaven. Thank you Kanopy and the great Australian mind that saw the need and acted on it.

Great content and it makes you read books!

“Thoughtful entertainment” as it says which is so true in terms of the quality of the content of this app. It’s a great alternative to Netflix not just because it’s free, its free from American pop-culture trash. Oh and you will need a participating library membership which is also great and makes you go to the library and hopefully get some books :)

Two accounts

Please help me. I have two accounts with two different email addresses. Password and a library card numbers the same .
I have tried to get in but to no avail. Thank the Lord I have the patience of Jobe. I think Kanopy is grand and I used it often until I opened another account with a different email address!
