Additional Options for Streaming Video

Consider public library systems. In the Cleveland/Cuyahoga County area, there are two excellent library systems that offer access to streaming video/movie collections. Access is free, all that is required is a current library card. Anyone may apply for a card online and then use the available resources. 

Please check your local public library systems for resources. Most libraries have stopped lending physical materials, but their electronic resources are fully available. Apply for a card to your local system and take advantage of the resources.

Streaming media resources available in the Cleveland Public or Cuyahoga County library systems: Hoopla, Kanopy, Overdrive.
