Streaming services I didn’t know about

All movie talk goes in here, whether it's a raving review or a ranting tirade. Basically, anything about movies.

Streaming services I didn’t know about

I’m sure many of you probably already know about this, but I had no clue. There are 2 streaming services that you can link to your public library acccount that carry thousands of streaming movies—including much/all of the Criterion Collection, Miramaxc collection, new stuff, old stuff, etc. You can stream through a Roku or your tablet, etc. Article here explains it and includes links. Right now my library only participates in Kanopy (but that’s still a huge number of movies including the Criterions) but I’m advocating for them to join Hoopla as well.

Excellent tip, Bucky! Thanks!

A month ago, I was at my local library donating books, and as I have not had a library card in ages thought it would be fun to get one. Unfortunately, I needed some copy of a home bill in order to sign up. As with lots of things, I meant to go back, but of course I never did.

I AM SOOOOO going back now!!!

Thank you Bucky :D
Summertime Fun
