Recent Changes to Kanopy Kids

14 May Recent Changes to Kanopy Kids

Last week, the Library’s online streaming site, Kanopy, launched some new features to the Kanopy Kids site. These new updates will allow library customers to access Kanopy Kids with unlimited plays for a rolling 30-days.  

Some additional new features to Kanopy Kids will include:

Parental Controls – Parents can ensure their kids are viewing age-appropriate content on Kanopy by setting personalized PINs that, when enabled, keep kids inside Kanopy Kids. A customer will need to enter their PIN to exit Kanopy Kids and access the General Audience collection.

Uncapped Playing – When in Kids Mode, users will be able to view as many enriching films as they’d like for 30 days on a rolling basis.

New Content – Kanopy has curated a collection of age-appropriate and educational videos that aim to enrich and inform young customers. Kids can stream literary favorites from Weston Woods like Goodnight Guerilla, Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People’s Ears, as well as PBS classics like Berenstain Bears. Expect more new content to be coming soon!

Happy streaming!
