We have recently switched to Southwest Michigan Digital Library from Woodlands Downloadable Library . Please log in to Southwest Michigan Digital Library and update any bookmarks you may have.
The Sturgis District Library is now offering Kanopy streaming services through your library card. The streaming service offers mostly documentaries and indie films, but there are also other types of movies on Kanopy as well. Movies are viewable for a total of 72 hours as soon as you start watching it. Kanopy is accessible through web browser (, television, or mobile device with apps on iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, and Amazon Fire Tablet. 

How to Access Kanopy 

Patrons need to know their library card number and PIN. You may call the library or stop 
in with questions or to update your PIN.

Visit 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.
