There are a lot of streaming services out there that allow you to watch movies at home, but how many of them are free? This year, The New York Public Library partnered with Grasshopper films, a company dedicated to distributing independent films, to allow anyone with an NYPL library card access to their Projectr streaming service. That means if you’re reading this, you can stream a huge selection of movies right now! Don't have a New York Public Library card? Apply for a card online or in person at one of our locations.
