May 1, 2019 GMT

POCATELLO - Thousands of hours of films and other video content will be at your fingertips thanks to the Marshall Public Library.

From May 1 through 17, the library will take part in a trial run of Kanopy, an on-demand film streaming service. Kanopy hosts over 30,000 films including documentaries, rare and hard to find titles, indie favorites, international movies, classic films and educational content.

“We are devoted to bringing the best educational and cultural materials in the world to our patrons,” said Amy Campbell, public services supervisor, “including the best narrative films and documentaries.”


To access Kanopy, patrons must obtain a user ID and password from library staff. Staff can be contacted by calling 208-232-1263 ext. 106 or in person at the library. Once patrons have the credentials, they can sign-in at marshallpl.kanopy.com. During the trial, films will only be accessible through a web browser.
