Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Waccamaw Library, Kanopy streaming service is now available free of charge to all Georgetown County Library patrons. The Friends group kindly agreed to pay registration costs so that all Georgetown County Library cardholders have free access to streaming Kanopy videos as of this month. 

Any Georgetown County Library cardholder can visit and follow the instructions to register. Once registered, each patron will have 15 tickets per month to use in order to stream videos (e.g., it takes 2 tickets to view 1 feature film). Kanopy’s catalogue includes over 30,000 feature films, documentaries, and series from around the world, including works from prominent studios like A24, The Criterion Collection, and PBS. Patrons can choose from Kanopy’s array of classic Hollywood films, acclaimed foreign movies, and stimulating documentaries. 

For any technical issues, patrons are asked to directly contact Kanopy Support

“We are thrilled about this wonderful new service that has been so generously provided to all Library patrons throughout Georgetown County by our devoted Friends of the Waccamaw Library," said Dwight McInvaill, Georgetown County library director. "Of course, we still love books and encourage folks to visit our five beautiful Library facilities and bring home a stack of good books. But this opportunity to offer Kanopy video streaming represents another exciting step forward for the Georgetown County Library as we continue to provide cutting-edge media services to our public. Free access to Kanopy will enable all communities across Georgetown County to engage with the amazing worlds of international films and award-winning documentaries.”          

             To register, visit and select the “Get Started” button. You will then be asked, “Do you have a public library card?” Select the “Find Your Library” button. In the “Find Your Public Library” search box, enter “Georgetown County Library” and then click on “Select this library” next to “Georgetown County Library.” Next, on the “Add Library Card” page, enter your Library card number and pin, then select “Continue.” You will then be prompted to verify your preferred email address to complete the registration process. After this, your account will be allotted 15 tickets per month and you are ready to start streaming videos from Kanopy’s extensive catalogue.
