What is Freegal?
Freegal is a downloadable music service from your library. All you need is your library card number. Freegal offers access to about 3 million songs, including Sony Music's catalog of legendary artists. In total the collection is comprised of music from over 10,000 labels with music that originates in over 60 countries.
There is no software to download, and there are no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. Access to Freegal is limited to patrons of subscribing libraries.
How Does Freegal Music Work?
A download usage counter is located in the upper right corner of the freegalmusic.com website displaying your weekly allotment. For instance, 1/3 means that you have a weekly limit of 3 downloads, and you have used 1 of those downloads. The limit is set so that a maximum number of patrons may have equal access to the songs in the Freegal Music Service. The download counter resets each week at Monday 12:01 AM (Eastern Time, USA)
The site is set up to browse or search for your favorite music or artist. You can use the navigation at the top of the page to browse by keyword, artist, or album; or you can simply use our advanced search page. Freegal Music also offers a collection of Top Download lists on the homepage where users can browse a variety of music selections.
