With our holiday cds flying off of the shelf, it's a wonderful time of the year to explore freegal. If you live in Allen County and have a library card in good standing, you can use this excellent resource to download music -- you'll just need your ACPL card and PIN numbers. (If you don’t know what your PIN number is, give us a call at 260-421-1200, ext. 4011.) You can download up to 5 songs a week -- that's 260 songs per year!
Songs are downloaded in an MP3 format (compatible with everything), so they can be saved to any computer, mobile device or MP3 player. If you have an iPod, you will need to have a registered copy of iTunes and access to a non-library computer. There are no digital rights management restrictions and no special software required for non-Apple products. We suggest you choose “Save” or “Save As” and direct it to save to your Music or Downloads folder when you download the songs.
Songs can also be added to the free freegal app -- but to keep them forever, you may want to export them -- click here
You can also start building your own holiday party playlist for a 3-hour streaming session. Find some popular Christmas albums
