SAN ANTONIO (November 10, 2022) — All San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) cardholders now have access to streaming videos through Kanopy. The selection includes over 250 highly curated titles and access to Kanopy Kids, a platform of curated video content designed to support early literacy and critical thinking.
“Digital Library materials have become increasingly popular, and this trend accelerated during the pandemic,” said Ramiro S. Salazar, Library Director. “We are so pleased to add Kanopy to our ever-expanding collection of items and services which are free to San Antonio Public Library cardholders.”
Kanopy is available on a wide variety of platforms, including desktop and laptop computers, mobile devices, smart TVs and streaming devices. To start using Kanopy, SAPL users will need to input their Library card number on the Kanopy website or in the Kanopy app and create a free account. After this initial sign-up, users will only need their personal login to access streaming video through Kanopy.
The Library’s subscription also includes unlimited access to Kanopy Kids, a carefully curated collection of children’s programming that supports early literacy, STEM education, and even foreign language learning. Families will recognize favorite children’s characters from Sesame Street, PBS Kids, Weston Woods, and more.
