Kanopy ~ Free streaming movies! Thanks to the Friends of the Hancock Town Library, we are very pleased to announce that the popular on-demand film streaming service Kanopy is now available for free to library patrons at the Hancock Town Library. Library card holders can access Kanopy and sign up to start streaming films instantly by visiting http://hancocknh.kanopy.com. Films can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the Kanopy app for iOS, Android, AppleTV, Chromecast or Roku.
Offering what the New York Times calls “a garden of cinematic delights,” Kanopy showcases more than 30,000 of the world’s best films, including award-winning documentaries, rare and hard-to-find titles, film festival favorites, indie and classic films, and world cinema with collections from Kino Lorber, Music Box Films, Samuel Goldwyn, The Orchard, The Great Courses, PBS and thousands of independent filmmakers.
Here’s how it works:
1) Go to https://hancocknh.kanopy.com/
2) Create your own free Kanopy account
3) Verify your email address
4) Add your library card. This part is the same as signing into our catalog or OverDrive. If you’ve never done either of those things before, stop by or give us a call so we can let you know how to do this. There is a trick to it!
5) Browse for movies and watch!
You get five movie plays each month. Each movie is checked out to you for 72 hours and you can watch the movie as many times as you like in those 72 hours.
For more information, feel free to stop by or call the library at 525-4411 to speak with Amy or Jenn. Also know that the Kanopy support section (scroll all the way to the bottom to find SUPPORT) is excellent and should answer most, if not all, of your questions.
Please enjoy this wonderful addition to all the great offerings here at the Hancock Town Library. Thank you, Friends of the Library!
Need help signing in to our catalog or downloading ebooks or audiobooks from OverDrive? Call to make an appointment with Amy or Jenn for help! We’ll do our best to get your digital library working for you. 525-4411.
Just a reminder that we have a few museum passes to offer our patrons, thanks to the Friends of the Library. Our list includes Canterbury Shaker Village, Cheshire Children’s Museum in Keene, the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, The Fells Historic Estate & Gardens in Newbury, NH, Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, VT, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In the past, donors have generously contributed passes to their favorite museums. If you have a special museum in mind and would like to do the same, let us know!
Wondering if we have that new book you just read about? Is it 10:00 at night and you really want to know? No worries! You can check our catalog (https://hancock.biblionix.com) and reserve or renew books from the comfort of your own home. Come in and we’ll show you just how easy it is!
