People don’t have to stay home to enjoy movies, music and TV anymore. Now, they can stream it on the go, using mobile devices to watch or listen wherever they please. To stay current with our patrons, the Library provides access to streaming media sites Kanopy and Hoopla, which makes it easy to watch programming or listen to music on your PC, mobile device or TV.
