The Olathe Public Library is excited to introduce a new video streaming service featuring content just for kids. Kanopy Kids has a diverse selection of educational and entertaining content that ranges across movies, TV series, animated storybooks, live action, and animated favorites. You can find many PBS shows, including Sesame Street, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Wild Kratts, and more. There are animated versions of popular picture books, such as Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!, Where the Wild Things Are, Scaredy Squirrel, and Diary of a Worm. You'll find short films as well as full length features, classic tales, Bible stories, and animation from around the world. There is also a Parental Control option for parents to monitor what their children can view. There is plenty to explore on Kanopy Kids, and it's all free! You just need your library card to set up a free account.
But don't let the kids have all the fun! Kanopy (the main site) offers a wide range of videos for grown-up tastes, including popular movies, award winning films, documentaries, old classics, film shorts, educational videos, and more. There is a limit of ten streamed videos per month per cardholder on the main Kanopy site, but there is unlimited viewing for the young ones on Kanopy Kids. All streaming is ad-free and can be enjoyed on your TV, mobile phones, tablets and online. So check out this new streamed video service. Just one more perk of being an Olathe Public Library cardholder!
