Kanopy Video Streaming

What is Kanopy? It's a video streaming service. Think Netflix but with a focus on independent films, documentaries, and classics from the Criterion Collection. The great thing about Kanopy is it's free for Skokie library cardholders. Sign up online, download the app, then get ready to stream thousands of films.

So, if you’re not the superhero-Hollywood-blockbuster type, but prefer independent films, documentaries from the Media Education Foundation, and digital versions of The Great Courses, you'll want to give Kanopy a try.

And there’s Kanopy Kids for those junior film buffs out there.
