There's so much to do online during isolation, you're spoilt for choice. Who knew! It's a matter of having the time outside of daily exercises, getting a breath of fresh air on a walk in the park, seeing to the family, chores and so on. But when you get that me time to yourself, to just breathe and be, you might want to take a look at Kanopy if you love cinema. What's Kanopy? It's the world's finest cinema, FREE for you! Enjoy many classic or new films each month via your laptop, mobile, tablet or PC 24/7. All library patrons have 10 digital play credits to view up to 10 movies or TV series episodes per month.

Right now, it's super easy to become a library member. Being a movie buff, I just did, just to add to my repertoire of Netflix, SBS On Demand, film reviews and more - but honestly I'm flat tack with no time, still the dream remains and is kept alive. Thanks to public libraries and universities, join now and get streaming!

Known as the thinking person's Netflix, Kanopy is chock-full of thoughtfully curated art-house, independent and international cinema that you often won't find on the big streaming services - including this 2018 gem starring Maggie Gyllenhaal (image above). Described as "unsettling", "thought-provoking", "disturbing" and "creepy" - it's perhaps not what you would usually expect from a movie with "Kindergarten" in the title? It's the latest that has landed in the library catalogue and is available right now to check under newstuff, so GET APP-TIVATED, sit back and enjoy.
