The Biblio File: Library News

The Biblio File
February 15, 2021


We are trying something new at the library!  Kanopy has over 30,000 films and adds 50 new movies and documentaries a week.  It also has “The Great Courses” and kid’s content.  We are going to try this out for 30 days beginning today, Monday, February 15, 2021 and will need your feedback – if you like it we may sign up for the year.  The way it works is you will sign in at and log in to Pinawa (red label at the bottom left).

You will be asked for your library card number which is your Patron ID (card number).
Now you will need to create an account which is simply your name, email address and a password of your choice. After you are signed up you will only need your email address and password to access your account – you skip the initial “Library Card Number” and just head directly to the log in button on the top right of the screen. Once you are in you can start scrolling through all of the choices!

During this trial period you will be able to watch 4 movies, and have full access for 30 days to one Great Courses, and the kid’s content.  Once you press play on the movies they are unlocked for 72 hours.

Please let us know what you think.  Your feedback will determine whether or not the library signs up for this service.  We will do our best to answer any questions you have – we are learning this together so please be patient while we make sure to get the answers that you may need.
