ALL ABOUT FREEGAL
What is Freegal?
Freegal is a downloadable music service. All you need is your library card and your PIN (the last four digits of the phone number on file at your library). Freegal offers access to about 3 milion songs. There is no software to download, and there are no digital rights management restrictions. Access to Freegal is limited to patrons with a valid Westchester public library card.
How does Freegal Music work?
A download usage counter is located in the upper right corner of briarcliffmanorlibrary.freegalmusic.com when you log in. You have a weekly limit of 5 downloads. [If the download counter says 1/5 that means that you have used 1 of your 5 downloads. The download counter is reset each week on Monday at 12:01 AM.] The music that you download is yours to keep. It is not a loan. It will not expire.
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 browse by genre or top downloads.
You may now also utilize Freegal Music to stream 3 hours of music every day.
Using Freegal on your computer?
When you download the song, make sure to save it to your desktop. You can then drag the song into your music library.
Using Freegal on your smartphone or tablet?
Download the free Freegal app first. Then you can search and download songs right on your device. The songs will be in your Freegal app under "My Music." You will not be able to transfer the song into iTunes this way.
