Kanopy movie service

Acton residents stream movies for free


Enjoy Kanopy, a movie streaming service available to Acton residents with your library card! Stream thousands of documentaries, indie films, classic films, and other original content to your  computer mobile  or  TV device .

Movies are available on demand with no waiting and no overdue fees! Once you check out a film, you have 72 hours to view it, as many times as you like. 

While the library is closed, we have increased play credits to 15 movies per calendar month. Also enjoy "Kanopy Kids" and "Great Courses" with unlimited viewing.

To get started:

Acton residents, use your Minuteman library card to create an account.


If you are not an Acton resident, check with your home library to see if it offers Kanopy, or create a BPL e-card and access Kanopy through the Boston Public Library .
