Washington County Free Library has announced it now offers access to Freegal, a free downloadable music service to its patrons. All you need is your library card number.
Freegal Music and the music you download are free to you as a patron of the library. Each user has a limit of five downloads per week. This allows for a large number of patrons to use the service before the library system’s total weekly limit of downloads is reached.
A download usage counter is in the upper right corner of the Freegal webpage displaying your weekly allotment. Each Monday your personal download usage is reset to zero. To access Freegal go to www.washcolibrary.org click on the elibrary link at the top of the page and then click the Freegal link.
With access to the Sony Music Entertainment catalog, Freegal offers hundreds of thousands of songs, more than 100 genres of music, and more than 50 record labels, all without having to download software or have any digital rights management issues to deal with.
