We know many of you have missed seeing this season’s International Film Festival presented by the Friends of the Library.  We are happy to announce that everyone will be able to see the films on their own computers and at their own convenience. You will need to create an account with Kanopy, a movie streaming resource that is available free through the library’s website. The format will be to watch the film on your own and then at a later date to join our group discussion on ZOOM.

The procedure is as follows:

  1. From your internet browser, go to http://monroetw.kanopy.com and click enter.  The site will appear. 
  2. Click on “Add a Library Card”.  
  3. Enter your complete library card number (all numerals, starting with 2937) and library card pin.  Click continue.
  4. Welcome to kanopy will come up. You will see the movie page. 
  5. In the search box at the top of the page, type the title of the film.

We will set up a ZOOM meeting on a particular date for a discussion of the film. We hope you will join us.
