The library now has a new service that allows you to permanently download up to three songs per week. That's right, permanently! Unlike our most of the library's other media downloads, songs downloaded from the library via the Freegal Music service are yours to keep.
To access Freegal, simply visit the library's Downloadable Media page, click on Freegal Music, and then enter your library card number and PIN to sign in. You may browse for songs by artist, genre and newly added to name a few, or you may search for the songs or artists that you would like to add to your collection.
Songs come from the Sony Music Entertainment catalog, and there are over 100 genres of music, and more than 50 record labels to choose from. The songs require no additional software to play, nor do they have any digital rights management (DRM) issues. This means that songs downloaded from Freegal will play on any mobile device that plays music.
You may consult the FAQs on the Freegal site for questions on how to download and play music on a specific device, or any other questions on this service, or as always, call the library.
