After careful consideration, starting July 1, 2019, Queens Public Library will no longer offer customers free access to Kanopy, the video streaming service.

While we understand that some cardholders enjoyed this service, the increasing cost of Kanopy and the need to devote our resources to other priority services and materials that are in higher demand, such as books, e-books, and DVDs, make it unsustainable.

Video streaming is still available through Overdrive, our digital media provider, and DVDs are still available at all our branches. We also will continue exploring other options for video streaming services. In addition, next month we will start welcoming DVD purchase suggestions as part of our materials request program.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
