Kanopy & RBdigital Streaming Ending

Over the next two months (May/June 2021), Mary Riley Styles Public Library will discontinue its subscriptions to Kanopy and Rbdigital streaming video.

These services will end on the following dates:

  • May 14: AcornTV
  • May 20: All other Rbdigital streaming content – including Great Courses, IndieFlix, and Qello Concerts
  • June 30: Kanopy

The library initially offered Kanopy and RBdigital video streaming services in response to public interest and the desire to provide additional e-resources while operating out of a smaller temporary location during our renovation and expansion project. Although these streaming services are “free” to our library card holders, each time they are used the library actually incurs a charge. This per use billing model makes budgeting for these services extremely difficult to control, particularly at a time when the library’s operating budget is flat due to COVID-19. 

We appreciate your understanding and will continue to focus on maintaining and expanding our core services and programs including physical materials, eBooks/eAudiobooks, eMagazines and more.
