Did you know that RRPL is an online provider of entertainment to our patrons? We offer this entertainment through several streaming services. You may wonder, what is a streaming service? This service is a group of selected providers that delivers video and music content via an Internet connection to the subscriber’s computer, TV or mobile device. With a RRPL library card, a patron will have access to AcornTv, Hoopla and Kanopy, offering hundreds of free videos, tv shows, and movies. Simply go to our website at https://rrpl.org/digital-library/, click on the streaming service of your choice, create an account with your library card, and begin browsing & selecting entertainment of your choice.
On a monthly basis we offer two separate programs, Streaming Stories Spotlight and Film Club, which highlight a video selected from our streaming services.
In February, Streaming Stories Spotlight will highlight John Lewis: Good Trouble, to celebrate Black History Month. Go to YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/, search Rocky River Public Library, to view a 5-8 minute review by our staff , and learn why we think it’s a great movie pic.
Also in February, Film Club will be viewing Boy, a coming-of- age story of a young boy who finds that his father is a far cry from from the heroic adventurer he’s imagined the man to be. Boy is a love story to boyhood , a twist in celebrating Valentines Day. Consider joining us for a robust conversation about Boy with fellow film lovers on February 25th at 7pm.
