Kanopy has redesigned their web version to be more accessible and user-friendly for patrons! Starting the week of March 28, 2022, your favorite streaming service will have: 

  • Improved searching and browsing to quickly and easily find films. 

  • A new Continue Watching shelf (also available on the app) that lets you start watching where you left off. 

  • More obvious play credit and time-to-expiration signs showing you how many credits you have and the time before credit expires on a film or series. Through the Long Beach Public Library, you can watch 6 films per month, and you have 3 days to watch the film as many times as you like. 

  • Live Transcript tool that plays the transcript while the video runs. 

These updates do not apply to the Kanopy app. Log into the Kanopy web version through LBPL’s Digital Library. 


Kanopy includes acclaimed movies and documentaries on-demand from award-winning filmmakers. Browse the collections of top film-festival favorites, classic films, world cinema, and popular movies including The Criterion Collection, The Great Courses, Kino Lorber, PBS, and others. With new films added every week, Kanopy allows you to access an unrivaled collection of over 30,000 films.
