Who needs Netflix or Hulu?
The San Benito County Free Library announced that local cardholders now have access to streaming of 30,000 films through a service called Kanopy.
That service will join other recent online additions for the library, including an e-book and audiobook service.
Friends of the San Benito County Free Library President Susan Logue at Tuesday’s county board meeting also plugged cloud services available to all cardholders, including access to the New York Times.
According to the library’s announcement on Kanopy:
The San Benito County Free Library has entered into a partnership with Kanopy, an award-winning video streaming service with more than 30,000 classic, independent, foreign language, and educational films. All content is free for library cardholders.
The service also features Kanopy Kids, which offers animated storybooks, family films, and popular kids’ TV shows. All children’s content has age-based ratings from Common Sense Media, plus additional parental controls.
Library cardholders can stream a maximum of seven videos per card per month.
