NOTE: Curtis Library’s IndieFlix service will be cancelled effective July 1, 2015.
IndieFlix gives you free access to thousands of streaming movies from independent filmmakers and more than 2,000 film festivals worldwide, including SXSW, Sundance, Cannes, and Slamdance.
All you need to watch is an email account, a Curtis Memorial Library card and a broadband Internet-connected device. No checkouts, returns, or waiting. Multiple users can watch the same film on different devices at the same time.
IndieFlix is available on all Internet-enabled computers, tablets including iPad and Android, and smartphones through the web browser. Many films are also available on Roku and Xbox. Although the IndieFlix late night channel is disabled for library users, the remaining available films are not rated by the MPAA, so viewer discretion is advised.
Once you have an account, you can watch movies through IndieFlix.
The Curtis Library, along with 140 other Maine libraries, offers over 5000 eBooks through the Maine Infonet Download Library.
A variety of best-selling Fiction, Non-Fiction, YA and Children’s content is available to read.
You can access this collection free of charge with your Curtis Library card.
In addition to the Download Library service, there are many free eBooks that are available all the time because they are in the public domain (out of copyright) or otherwise accessible license-free.
The Curtis library is making downloadable audiobooks available through a service called OverDrive.
These audio books are available via a computer to those with home computers, MP3 players and laptops.
Users can log into the Maine Infonet Download Library with their Curtis Library Card, find a digital audio book, and put that book on their device to listen to it.
After one week, the book disappears from the person’s computer and is available for the next patron to check out.
