What is Kanopy?

How do I access Kanopy in different states in Australia?

How do I become a state or public library member?


Kanopy is an educational on-demand streaming video platform that offers films, TV shows and documentaries. This service is free for public and state library members, but there is a limit on the number of films or series you can watch a month.

You can check if your local public or state library subscribes to Kanopy here:  https://www.kanopy.com/en/signup/find/publiclibrary

To use Kanopy, you will need to apply for free public or state library membership. You can sign up online for immediate access to all online library collections - including Kanopy. (Some libraries will send a letter for you to prove your address, and you will need to enter the mailed code to fully activate your membership).

See examples of libraries in different states where the streaming platform Kanopy is available for residents of the entire state:
