There’s a New Way to Watch Free Movies

Calling all movie buffs! Access more than 30,000 films for free with Kanopy, a new resource in our E-Library. All you need to use the on-demand video streaming service is your free library card. Kanopy’s collection includes award-winning documentaries, rare and hard-to-find titles, Canadian cinema selections, and an array of foreign language films.
