If you’ve heard of the exciting new offering for all members of MidCoast Council Libraries, the on demand film streaming service Kanopy, then no doubt you’ll have begun to make the most of it.

If you haven’t yet trialled the service, the Kanopy Film Club events are for you.

Kanopy is a free streaming service that is accessible with a MidCoast Council Libraries membership card. Members can enjoy a large collection of award-winning films and documentaries, for all ages.

The Kanopy Film Club events are being held to highlight Kanopy to members and will take place at Forster Library on the first Monday of the month and at Taree Library on the third Wednesday of every month.

“Kanopy is a really exciting new addition to our services and it’s more than just another streaming service,” explained Chris Jones, Manager of MidCoast Council Libraries.

“There’s more than 30,000 films and documentaries available and they’re mostly independent, award-winning, film festival favourites.

“I’ve been making the most of the service and it’s great to watch something a little bit different, something you wouldn’t find on one of the other streaming services.”

The next Kanopy Film Club event will be held at Taree Library on Wednesday 16 October from 1:30pm to 3:30pm.

The Libraries team has selected ‘The Song Keepers’ to stream, a film that tells the inspiring story of an Aboriginal women’s choir and their first tour of Germany.

Afternoon tea will be provided.

“Come along, watch an amazing film and get to know Kanopy,” added Chris.
