A Google Chromecast is streaming device that gives you access to the library's collection of digital move and television content, including Hoopla and Kanopy. The device can be plugged into the HDMI port on any HDTV. Chromecast works with Android, iOS, Chrome for Mac, and Chrome for Windows. (Laptops and Chromebooks require the Chrome browser and Google Cast extension.)
