Accessing kanopy

Kanopy is a video streaming service that partners with public libraries, allowing you to use your library card to view 8 movies a month for free. Movies can be enjoyed on your TV, mobile phone, tablets and online. Content in kanopy has been made possible by the use of the Freda Fishman Stroh Cultural Grant and the Friends of the Bixby Library. The content in kanopy is independent from the content found in our other resources, GMLC, Palace, and hoopla.

You must first create a kanopy account. Go to the kanopy website and choose the Bixby Memorial Free Library as your home library. Then click “Add Library Card”. You will need to know your Bixby Library card barcode, this is the full code (letters and numbers) on the back of your library card. This barcode starts with the number “2” and the letters “VSQI”. For example, your Bixby barcode should look like: “2VSQI00000WXYZ”. You will also need to know your library account password. After entering this information kanopy will ask you to enter your name, email, and create a password, then you will have access to the collection!

Your username is the barcode on your library card, this is the full code (letters and numbers) on the back of your library card. Please note this barcode starts with the number “2” and the letters “VSQI”.

The default password for your account will either be “userpass” or the last 4 digits of your library card barcode. Before using this in hoopla, we strongly recommend changing your password to make your account more secure.

Forgot your password, or want to change it? Go to the library catalog and click “Forgot your Password”, then enter your library barcode. A password reset will be emailed to you.

If you do not know your library barcode, password, or have any trouble, please contact the library at 802-877-2211 or email

If you do not have a Bixby Library card and would like to receive one please come into the library and ask at the circulation desk.

Search the catalog of movies after logging into kanopy, click a movie, and start watching! After viewing a movie your play credits will decrease. You can view the movie on your computer, through a mobile app, or a TV app.

You are able to view eight movies a month on kanopy. As soon as the first day of the month arrives, you will have eight new kanopy credits to use. Unused play credits do not roll over to the next month. You have unlimited plays for videos in the Kanopy Kids section.
