What is Freegal?

Freegal is a free music download service that allows you (with a library card in good standing) to download and KEEP up to 3 songs a week - choose from hundreds of popular artists. To access your free downloads, go to:

  • Books, Movies & More page on the Library's website
  • Select either the Music or eMedia Tab
  • Select Freegal Music Downloads
  • Login and enjoy your music.

Once in Freegal you will be able to keep track of your downloads in the upper right corner of the site. Every song has a sample clip you can listen to before you download.

The downloads on this site are all in MP3 format. This service will work with any MP3 player, including iPod, and can be loaded into iTunes. It works on both PCs and Macs.

Be sure to check out the browsing areas, especially Artists A to Z (bottom of page) and the genre lists (menu bar). Click on see all genres to view dozens of categories.

If you have more questions or need help troubleshooting an issue please visit our FAQs, Tips & Tricks page and select the Freegal tab.
