4/15/2022- BE ADVISED that Kanopy, after a site upgrade, seems to be a little glitchy on the account creation portion of their platform. If your library card # should be rejected try this! Download the Kanopy app (available wherever you get your apps) and create your account there. No, this doesn’t mean you’ll have to watch movies on your phone. Once created, you should be able to successfully log into Kanopy on whichever device you wish! If you have any trouble, give us a call at 715-798-3189.
WHO has access to a streaming service free of monthly fees and advertising…and offering over 30,000 movies, documentaries and tv series? YOU! YOU DO…if you are a patron of the Forest Lodge Library and live in Cable or Namakagon. In addition to access to thousands of films, contemporary and classic, documentaries on an unbelievable number of subjects and t v series from various networks, there are over 7000 Great Courses available for you to check out for 30 days!
The Forest Lodge Library has recently acquired a subscription to the KANOPY streaming service. Visit https://forestlodgelibrary.kanopy.com. This will take you to a screen requiring you to input your patron barcode, a.k.a. library card #. (If you don’t quite know where your card is, give the library a call or email and we’ll remind you of your patron barcode.) If you are a Cable/Namakagon patron you’ll be forwarded to the Kanopy home page. Here you’ll be required to create an account. As always, we encourage you to write down your username and password so you’ll be able to log in to all your devices!
Once you’ve created an account, you’ll have 5 credits to expend every month. Each movie or series episode will cost you a credit…unless it’s an A & E or History Channel series. Those entire series are included for a credit. Once you’ve used up your 5 credits…you’ll have to wait until next month to check out more. EXCEPT…every month there are Credit Free Films available. Titles in this category check out for 72 hours. If you fall asleep watching something the first evening, it won’t cost you another credit to pick up where you left off, within that 72 hours.
Great Courses check out for 30 days and do not count against your 5 credits per month! You may check out 2 per month.
Kanopy Kids will allow a family 30 days of access to the entire Kanopy Kids collection, and also does not count as one of your 5 credits per month.
Our KANOPY service is ready to serve you! Get started today! If you don’t have a library card, come on in and get one! Or, you can register for a library card online at https://catalog.northernwaters.org/MyAccount/SelfReg.
IF you try to play something and all you get is the unending spiral of death…try downloading the Kanopy app. Make your viewing selection again and you should, now, have no problems!
You can also visit kanopy.com and use their “branch-finder” tool to locate your library. The direct url is https://forestlodgelibrary.kanopy.com. We’re very excited to offer this service…and feel certain you’ll find much to enjoy!
