As of May 1, 2020, Alexandria Library customers will no longer have access to the Kanopy on-demand film streaming service. The Library began offering the service in July 2018 due to public demand for download movie streaming services. We were offering customers 8 titles per month “free” at a pay- per-use cost of $2 to the Library for videos that played longer than 4 minutes. We soon incurred extremely high costs and in an attempt to maintain the service, lowered downloads to 4 titles per month to ease our budget costs. Kanopy then decided to “package” offerings into specialty groups and increased the price to $5 per download, cancelling any cost savings and overrunning our budget. Additional and continual changes within Kanopy’s price packaging structure have made it difficult for the Library to continue offering the service.
