Tickets are used to play videos on Kanopy. Each month, ESPL provides Kanopy viewers with eight tickets. Your tickets reset on the first day of the month, and unused tickets don't roll over to the next month. As you browse for titles, you'll see the number of tickets required to watch each title and how long you have to watch it.
For younger viewers ages 2 to 8, Kanopy Kids offers a carefully curated collection of children’s programming that supports early literacy, STEM education, and even foreign language learning. While in the Kanopy Kids section, you'll only see content that's age-appropriate and allows unlimited viewing. Watching Kanopy Kids titles never consumes tickets.
