It makes us as sad as it makes you to announce that the Criterion Collection will no longer offer video streaming services to libraries, starting June 29, 2018. We know how much you loved being able to watch their huge selection of cinema classics; but the vendor has chosen not to renew their license with public libraries.

But don't despair. You can still stream any film in the Criterion collection for the next week - and we have some other options for you as well:

You can still borrow Criterion films on DVD from the library - 619 of them, to be exact. 

And our newest video streaming service, Kanopy (which is worth exploring in its own right), still offers 50 of the most popular Criterion movies. Here's a list:
