Starting November 1, 2023, the viewing experience on Kanopy will be easier than ever with the switch from play credits to tickets. With this update, you can easily see the number of tickets required and viewing period for each film next to the play button. Each month, you’ll get 30 tickets and you can watch as many titles as our library’s ticket limit allows. Your tickets reset on the first day of the month, and unused tickets don't roll over to the next month. Stream Kanopy on your computer or download the app on your phone, tablet or Roku device. Please note that Kanopy Kids does not use tickets and has unlimited views. 

Did you know you can watch thousands of feature films, documentaries, and bingeable series for free from our library? Get out your library card and sign up for Kanopy to get started today. 

Here’s How it Works: 

  1. Go to DC Public Library's Kanopy site 
  2. Add your library card 
  3. Create a Kanopy account 
  4. Start watching videos!
