Discontinued Services

Discontinued: Boopsie & Kanopy Services

As good stewards of our citizen's investment in the Library, we recently underwent a review of the return on investment for the vendor services we provide to the community. During this process, we found two services that, unfortunately, showed low community usage compared to the costs. After careful consideration, we have decided to discontinue the use of these services.

As of October 1, we are no longer able to provide access to Kanopy streaming services or the Boopsie mobile app.

The Library will continue to examine new film streaming services, similar to Kanopy, in the hope of finding a more cost-effective model. In the meantime, please visit the Library where you can borrow from our large collection of DVDs. If we don't have a movie, we can always borrow it for you through interlibrary loan.

If you were a Boopsie mobile app user, we encourage you to create a shortcut to our new mobile-friendly catalog interface. It is simple, easy to use, and has up-to-date account information. We've created a short tutorial for you to make this easier.

iOS (iPhone) Users:

  • Once you have the online catalog website open, tap the share iconIOS Share Button.
  • This will open up the sharing menu. Tap "+ Add to Home Screen".
  • Change the name how you'd like and press "Add."
  • The shortcut should now appear on your home screen.

We are continuously working to ensure that we are wisely using the resources provided to us in ways that meet the largest number of community needs. We appreciate your support and apologize for any inconvenience these service changes may cause.
