Kanopy and Libby
Starting Monday, December 6, you will have a new way to discover your library’s Kanopy service directly from Libby. Kanopy will appear in the Extras section of the Libby app alongside your library’s own curated collections, campaigns, and catalog guides.

The Kanopy app and all the ways to browse, stream, and enjoy videos from Kanopy will remain unchanged.

Additional details about Kanopy discovery in Libby:

  • When you select Kanopy in Libby, you’ll be shown a screen to learn more and get started. If you already have the Kanopy app installed on that device will be prompted to open it.

  • Existing Kanopy users will sign into Kanopy with the same login credentials they already use. New users who discover Kanopy through Libby will be prompted to create an account with Kanopy.
