Want to download some free music and not break any laws doing it? Then check out the latest new service available from the library, Freegal (rhymes with legal). All you need is a valid library card from any library in Allegheny County.
Millions of songs are available for download including many from some of the most popular and current artists today. Genres range from Adult Contemporary to Big Band to Hip Hop to Polka. Whatever your musical tastes, there will most likely be a genre to cover it. And there's no software to install.
Download three free music tracks (MP3 format) from popular artists each week with no software to download and no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. Log in with your library barcode number and PIN.
You will always see how many downloads you have available each week. Once you are logged in you will see it in the upper right corner.
You can always add items to a wish list if you want so you always have songs to choose from when your available downloads free up. Just click on the "plus" sign beside the song you want to download or to add it to your wish list.
Once an item is downloaded it will be on your computer and it is yours to keep. You don't need to return it and you can transfer it to any device that you want.
There are also lots of music videos available for download as well. The only difference is that videos count as two downloads instead of one.
Look for your titles in your downloads folder or where ever you've chosen to save them and enjoy your new, free music! And if you want to download music and videos directly to your mobile device or tablet simply look for the Freegal app in your devices app store.
