As Culture Pass is a New York Public Library program, only NYPL cardholders are currently eligible to reserve a Culture Pass. Culture Pass is not affiliated with the Westchester Library System. You can learn more about obtaining an NYPL card (available to all NY State residents) by clicking here: nypl.org/library-card. More information about Culture Pass can be found at culturepass.nyc.
Got a WLS library card? You can now watch thousands of films, including The Criterion Collection, for free with your library card! Simply visit https://wls.kanopystreaming.com/, sign-up for an account, and get watching. Hundreds of films are added to the collection each month.
Cardholders can watch up to 10 films per month. Play credits reset on the first of every month. Once you've started a film, you can re-watch it as many times as you want for the next 3 days without using additional credits.
You can watch Kanopy in your web browser, through the Kanopy mobile apps, and on your TV with Roku or Chromecast.
Did you know that Westchester County residents are eligible to apply for a New York Public Library card? You don't even have to visit any of the NYPL branches to apply!
However, when you receive the physical card in the mail, you need to validate it before using. You can do this by showing your up-to-date New York State Driver's license in person
at any branch of the New York Public Libraries or you can email a scan of your NYS Driver's license to email@example.com. Learn the process here.
This just in! If you have a New York Public Library card, you can obtain a Culture Pass for free admission to over 30 cultural institutions in the five boroughs! Learn which museums
offer free "Culture Pass" admission and how to reserve one, here.
