December 8, 2021 - The Davenport Public Library is pleased to announce the addition of Kanopy to their digital offerings.

Kanopy provides access to movies that can be streamed on-demand. Feature films, classic movies, foreign films and documentaries can be viewed. Kanopy Kids has a selection of educational and entertainment content for children ages 2-8. Parental controls may be set up. Many of The Great Courses can be subscribed to, as well. Once you start a Great Course, you have 30 days to complete it.

Davenport Library cardholders may logon using their library card number and password/pin for the account. After that residents will need to Sign Up for a Kanopy account by providing a name, an email address, and a password.

Kanopy operates on Play Credits. Each time residents begin to watch a movie, a Play Credit is deducted from the account. Patron may use up to four (4) Play Credits a month for free. The Play Credit counter resets at the beginning of each month.

Once residents start to watch a video, they will have access to it for either 48 or 72 hours, depending upon the movie. During that period, patrons may watch it as many times as they like without using another Play Credit.

Films can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the Kanopy app for iOS, Android, AppleTV, Chromecast or Roku.
