NEW Kanopy Film Streaming Service

With Kanopy, Londoners Have Access to more than 30,000 Films, For Free With Their London Public Library Card!

The popular on-demand film streaming service Kanopy and Kanopy Kids is now available for free at London Public Library. Library card holders can access Kanopy and sign up to start streaming films instantly. Films can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the Kanopy app for iOS, Android, AppleTV, Chromecast or Roku.

Offering what the New York Times calls “a garden of cinematic delights,” Kanopy showcases more than 30,000 of the world’s best films, including award-winning documentaries, rare and hard-to-find titles, film festival favorites, indie and classic films, and world cinema with collections from Kino Lorber, Music Box Films, Samuel Goldwyn, The Orchard, The Great Courses, PBS and thousands of independent filmmakers.

With the motto of "thoughtful entertainment," Kanopy provides London Public Library patrons with access to films of unique social and cultural value; films that are often difficult or impossible to access elsewhere, and programming that features diversity, with a wide array of foreign language films and films on race, and current affairs.

The film streaming service from Kanopy complements the Library's rich range of resources that can be physically borrowed, such as extensive DVD collection, or digitally streamed or downloaded.

The Kanopy collection includes indie hits, classic masterpieces and award-winning documentaries as well as a collection for children and families.

 Kanopy was founded in 2008 by CEO Olivia Humphrey as an educational tool for colleges and universities.
