What is Kanopy?

Kanopy is a video streaming service for quality, ad-free, thoughtful entertainment.  Find movies, documentaries, foreign films, classic cinema, independent films, and educational videos that inspire, enrich and entertain. 

Do I need a library card?

Yes.  Kanopy is only available at the Dearborn Public Library to those who have been issued Full Access Cards.  Click here to see if you qualify or to begin the process to sign up for a card.

What are play credits?

Play credits are used to play videos on Kanopy. You will receive 10 play credits per month through the Dearborn Public Library. Each video will use 1 play credit each with the exception of those in Kanopy Kids. Once you press play on a video and a play credit has been used, you will have 3 days to view it as many times as you like without using another play credit. Your play credits will reset back to 10 on the 1st day of each month.

What is Kanopy Kids?

Kanopy Kids is Kanopy’s collection of movies and shows tailored for a younger audience.  We currently offer unlimited plays in Kanopy Kids, so your kids are free to explore enriching, educational and entertaining films, and TV series.  Click here to check out Kanopy Kids!
