Our new and improved Freegal service gives you two options for music: streaming and downloadable MP3s. Streaming is unlimited and you can download 5 free songs per week. The nice thing about downloading is that you OWN the music and you don’t have to use your precious data to listen. I know in my house the high-speed data is used up very quickly! Take those tunes on the road with you to listen in your car, on a walk or even while you are trick-or-treating with your kids to enhance the mood. You can also find complete Halloween albums and playlists on Freegal plus audiobooks and music videos.

Not familiar with Freegal? You’ll need your library card number and PIN, and if you don’t have a card you can sign up for one online or call our information line at 419-259-5200 and they’ll be glad to help.

You will need to be LOGGED IN before you can listen to previews of the music. Happy listening!
