Get access to complimentary access to Netflix, HBO Now and Sling TV with your East Brunswick Public Library card!

East Brunswick Public Library  has been lending its customers movies and television shows for decades. The library is now lending Roku kits, featuring a small device that plugs into the HDMI port on a television and connects to the internet. Once online, users can watch movies and television programming.

The Roku Express+ comes with complimentary access to Netflix, HBO Now and Sling TV. It also has access to Hoopla Digital and Kanopy, both streaming media services that can be accessed with an East Brunswick Public Library card. The Roku kit can be checked out by East Brunswick Public Library cardholders for two weeks. In order to use the Roku kit, users must have wireless high speed Internet at their home and a television set with HDMI inputs. Click here to put the Roku kit on hold. 

Sponsored by the Friends of the East Brunswick Library, this kit is part of the library’s EB Create makerspace program. Library cardholders can check out lendable kits, like telescopes, ukuleles and GoPro cameras. Each kit also comes with a curated selection of additional resources. 
The EB Create is a dedicated makerspace, where library customers can work on creative projects using library equipment, including sewing machines, video equipment, paper folding and binding machines, and a recording studio. More information about EB Create can be found here.
