How to Access Kanopy
Patrons need to know their library card number and PIN. You may call the library or email
with questions or to update your PIN: Research@Sturgis-Library.org.
Available by phone during shut down: M,W.Th: 5pm-7pm, Wed, Friday 11am-1pm.
Visit www.kanopy.com to create an account using your email and a password you create. You will then be asked to select your library, (Sturgis District Library), and enter your library card number with PIN as a one-time authentication. Future logins will only use your email and Kanopy password.
You can get up to 6 movies a month through Kanopy.
There is not a way to see if a movie is rated G, PG, PG-13, R, or Unrated. The only time Kanopy informs you about a films rating is if the movie is rated R. If the movie has a R rating, a popup should appear asking if you are 18 or above due to the rating.
You can use Kanopy on multiple devices in different viewing modes at the same time.
