Kanopy showcases more than 30,000 of the world’s best films, including award-winning documentaries, rare and hard-to-find titles, film festival favourites, indie and classic films, and world cinema with collections from Kino Lorber, Music Box Films, Samuel Goldwyn, The Orchard, The Great Courses, PBS and thousands of independent filmmakers.

Library card holders can access Kanopy and sign up to start streaming films instantly.

How to Get There:

  1. Go to the special Lake of Bays Library Kanopy portal here: or access it from the Movies and Music Streaming page under the eLibrary tab of this website.
  2. On Kanopy, click the red “Add Library Card” button
  3. Fill in your library barcode number (eg. BPL0000 or DPL0000) in the barcode field, and fill in your Lake of Bays Library card password in the PIN field.
  4. If this is your first time signing in, sign in with your Google account or your Facebook account by clicking either of those buttons, or create an account for Kanopy only by filling in your name, email, and creating a Kanopy password. 
  5. Watch your email inbox for an email from Kanopy to verify your email address.
That’s it! Now you can enjoy up to 5 films a month, and unlimited plays on Kanopy Kids which features kids programming for ages 2 to 8. Once you press play on a film, you have 3 days to watch that film. Your 5 movie credits will reset on the first of each month.
