Who doesn’t love the benefits of new features?
Libby & Kanopy
Have you seen the recent addition to your homepage in the Libby app? It’s now easier to get started using Kanopy, scroll down to the Extras section, and tap the button to start watching popular movies, documentaries, foreign films, and more. Similar to Hoopla, there is no hold list or waiting time for any of the videos. Stream in the Kanopy app, desktop, or via Roku, Apple TV, and other Smart TVs. With your library card, you are able to watch eight movies a month!
Additionally, cardholders are now able to check out 20 items on the Libby app at a time and place up to 30 holds. Just in time for a certain upcoming reading program! *wink wink* 😉
Introducing Hoopla BingePass! Magazine enthusiasts will love this new program. BingePass acts as a single checkout allowing unlimited access to collections for 7 days. Read 1, 5, or 50 popular magazines or complete a full course from The Great Courses with just a single borrow. This feature has begun rolling out, so make sure your hoopla app is up-to-date and you’ll be able to find it with the “More” button in the app’s bottom navigation bar. Happy reading!

In case you missed it, your library card now gives you access to Freegal Music. Stream up to three hours and day and download three MP3 files a week (resets every Sunday). Sign up to listen to 30, Adele’s first album in six years!
