What are play credits and how many do I receive through my library?

Play credits are used to play videos on Kanopy. You will receive 6 play credits per month through the Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library. Each video will use 1 play credit each except for those in Kanopy Kids.

Once you press play on a video and a play credit has been used, you will have 3 days to view it as many times as you like without using another play credit. Your play credits will reset back to 6 on the 1st day of each month.
