Kanopy Movies

    Kanopy is a new addition to our Digital Resources collection.  It offers over 30,000 films and their collection is continually growing.  A library patron is entitled to a maximum of eight movies per month.  Each  movie is available to you for three days and may be watched as many times as you’d like in that time period.  Once a patron has downloaded their quota for the month, no other movies may be downloaded until the new month begins.  Go to http://newfairfieldlibrary.Kanopy.com and create an account, add your library card number and a pin number.  If you have any questions, please call 203-312-5679.
