We are pleased to be the first library system in Michigan to provide its patrons access to Freegal, a new music download service. Log in to Freegal using your library card number, and search for your favorite songs among hundreds of thousands of recordings offered by Sony Music Entertainment. Each person can download up to three songs per week, and the counter will reset at midnight on Sundays.
Freegal allows you to search for songs by artist, composer, song, album, genre, and any combinations of those. Every song has a sample clip you can listen to before downloading. The downloads on Freegal are all in the MP3 format with no DRM. This service will work with any MP3 player, including iPod, and can be loaded into iTunes. It works on both PCs and Macs.
Check out Freegal today, and start downloading!
UPDATE (11-1-10): KDL has upgraded its subscription to the Freegal music service so the library as a whole is no longer limited to a maximum number of weekly downloads available. Each individual user is still limited to 3 songs per week, but you won’t have to “beat the rush” by downloading early in the week anymore!
