Residents with a Wichita Public Library card now can stream movies, documentaries, foreign films and TV series with Kanopy. Kanopy is a video streaming platform dedicated to thoughtful and thought-provoking films.
Each month, customers can check out seven films, access two courses from The Great Courses, and watch content on Kanopy Kids. This is a free service only accessible through the Library.
"We are excited to introduce this streaming service to our customers," said Jaime Prothro, Director of Libraries. "Through thoughtfully curated films and TV series, customers will be able to view some hard-to-find content and explore new thoughts and ideas."
Kanopy is available on many devices, including Apple TV and Roku. Customers can also access Kanopy through the mobile app (available on iOS and Android devices, and Amazon Fire tablets) and through the Kanopy website. Customers will register an account using their library card number.
If at any time customers have difficulty registering their account, they can call (316) 261-8500 during business hours and ask for a technology trainer. Customers can visit

Kanopy was founded in 2008 and provides public libraries and universities with essential films that foster learning and conversation.
