Kanopy is here!

Kanopy is here! What does that mean? Fairfield Public Library now offers over 30,000 streaming films to its patrons for free. All you need is a valid Fairfield Public Library card and a device able to download the Kanopy app (IOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, or Chromecast) or watch via a computer browser. Kanopy’s tagline is “thoughtful entertainment.” They specialize in documentaries, classic and international cinema, indie and short film. You won’t find Despicable Me 3 or Girls Trip on Kanopy. But you will find outstanding selections certain to appeal to a diverse group of library users. Currently we are offering user access to 7 films per month.
