For Adults

Watch Streaming Movies and Shows

03/12/2020 | e-materials

We have thousands of movies and tv shows for kids, teens, and adults to download or stream instantly with a library card. We buy streaming licenses from more than one platform, the same way you might subscribe to more than one streaming platform (Netflix, Hulu, Disney) at home. One platform does not have everything!

Detailed information about each of these is available on our download and stream page. If you have never borrowed from one of these platforms before directions are available:

Browsing in the website or app of one of these movie streaming services typically looks like this:

If you prefer, you can also check out most (but not all) of these streaming movies directly from the library catalog. When you see a streaming movie in the catalog it will typically look like this:

Whether a person prefers checking out from a service's app or would rather use the library catalog, is purely personal preference. The advantage of searching in the library's catalog is that you will be searching the streaming movies and shows of these services all at one time.

Use your Library card to instantly stream documentaries and videos focused on social and systemic injustice and racism in America on Kanopy. Titles include I Am Not Your Negro, P.S. I Can't Breathe, White Like Me - Race, Racism, and White Privilege in America, Race: The Power of an Illusion, and more. You can also stream movies from the Hoopla category Black Lives Matter. Titles include Maya Angelou And Still I Rise and Just Mercy.
