Washington County Library offers access to downloadable music service

March 14, 2011

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.

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, genre, featured artist or newly added artist; or you can simply use the advanced search page. Freegal music also offers an easy to use A-Z quick find at the bottom of the homepage.


Music files are downloaded as MP3 files which are compatible with any MP3 Player or device. You can transfer the music to any computer, MP3 player or even burn it to a CD. Copyright laws apply for all music downloaded.


Access to the Freegal downloadable music service through your Washington County Free Library card is underwritten by Western Maryland Regional Library.
