Stream Movies for Kids with your Library Card!

08/02/2021 | Movies & TV, Use the Library Online

Do you need to keep a house full of kids entertained for an afternoon? IndyPL can help! We've got a movie streaming service just for kids. You can borrow 10 titles a month with your library card. You watch each one for 72 hours, so don't borrow all 10 at once!

It's really easy to browse through the titles. Choose some to share with guests and some to watch during your child's own downtime. Kanopy Kids also has age ratings from Common Sense Media to help you make choices that are just right for your kids.

Here is a snapshot of our favorite Kanopy Kids category: Story Time! Other Kanopy Kids categories are Kids Movies, Kids TV, Educational & Beloved Characters.


Here's how it works:

  • Visit to sign up with your library card.
  • Once you press play on a movie, you have 3 days to view it as many times as you like without using another play credit.
  • Play credits reset on the 1st of the month.
  • Once you have reached your 10 movies a month limit, you will not be able to play any more movies until the new month starts when you will be given a fresh quota of 10 play credits again.
  • You can access Kanopy from any device, including iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast.
Let the fun begin!
