Kanopy Kids: Video Streaming Service


Kanopy Kids: Video Streaming Service

By Jane Girondo FCPL Early Literacy Assistant

Did you know that your Fairfax County Public Library (FCPL) card grants you access to hundreds of free videos for children? Kanopy Kids is a collection of educational and entertaining movies, TV series, animated storybooks and other content specifically for children. FCPL users have access to Kanopy and Kanopy Kids as a part of a year-long grant funded pilot program.

All you need to get started is a library card, a valid email address and a device that can access the internet. With Kanopy Kids, parents set up a parental control PIN which limits access to suitable content so kids can browse freely.

To set up your Kanopy Kids account:

  • Visit the Kanopy homepage or download the Kanopy app on a mobile device.
  • Search and select Fairfax County Public Library as your library.
  • Enter your library card number and password used for your online FCPL account.
  • Complete the account information form and start watching!

Visit your Kanopy account setting page to set up a parental control PIN
