Posted on: November 20, 2018 | By: grimes

Libraries offer a wide variety of online products and resources. Many of them are unknown to the general public. Those who have discovered these online gems are hooked for life.

We constantly evaluate our offerings to make sure they are current and as well rounded as possible. Because of this, we have added a new online service just for you! With Kanopy, you can check out movies and documentaries for kids and adults.

Many of the children’s films are kids books made into movies. What a great way to show your kids how to read the book and then watch the movie! By discussing similarities and differences between the book and the movie, you can help your child develop critical literacy skills they will use in school. Or, just let them watch for fun!

Grimes residents and residents of rural Polk county are able to borrow 3 movies from Kanopy per month. With thousands of titles to choose from, there is something for everyone! Browse our selection of films at You can also download the app from your app store.
