Kanopy Movie Service Discontinued

While Kanopy has been a great resource for our patrons, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to discontinue the service on Thursday, Oct. 31, 2019. Unfortunately, rising costs made it unsustainable. eBooks and audiobooks remain some of our most in-demand materials, and we will redirect some of the Kanopy budget towards adding to those collections. Downloadable movies, ebooks, and television shows are still available through Sunnyvale Public Library's other library resources.

Why are you discontinuing Kanopy?

Unfortunately, the pay-per-use costs of Kanopy are not sustainable. We are exploring other services that may be popular for our patrons. We would love to hear from you about what you liked about it! Can you tell us what was especially useful to you? Are there any other services that you know of that you’d like us to explore?

Is there another downloadable service I can use?

Absolutely! Hoopla is another terrific resource that you can use for television shows and movies. We also have a variety of services for downloadable audiobooks and eBooks.

Is there any way for me to continue to get Kanopy’s content?

Yes. A number of area libraries still currently offer the service, including Santa Clara County Library, Palo Alto City Library, San Mateo County Library, and San Mateo Public Library.

Additional questions or comments: Supervising Librarian Chaunacey Dunklee or 408-730-7381.
