    Where do I need to register to receive a link to watch Ask for Jane through the Spokane City Library? What is kanopy? Is the full length film also available on facebook and how does one access it on FB? Is there only one source to view film free?

    Answer: Kanopy is a free service provided by many library systems. Please check your local Library to see if they offer Kanopy. If not you can watch the movie for under $5.00 via Amazon, Youtube and Vimeo. It is a feature length movie. The film has a page on Facebook but at this time I don’t think you can watch the film on Facebook. If you want to attend our zoom discussion, please email and we will send you the Zoom link the night before the discussion. Thanks!
