Kanopy works on all devices and supports apps for Roku, Amazon Fire, iOS, and Android. For Irondale residents. How it works: Each Irondale resident library card gets 6 (six) "play credits" per month. One film = one play credit. Once you press play on a film, you have 3 days to view it as many times as you like without using another play credit. Play credits reset on the 1st of the month.
