What is Freegal?
How Freegal Music Works:
- Library users have a limited number of downloads and streaming hours per week. Your counter resets each week, Monday morning.
- Downloads are all in the MP3 format with no Digital Rights Management (DRM). This service works with any MP3 player, including iPods, and can be loaded into iTunes. It works on both PCs and Macs.
- You can track of your downloads in the upper right corner of the site. Every song has a sample clip you can listen to before you download.
Login to Freegal with your library card and PIN.
Some Helpful Tips:
Your PIN number is the same as your password for your regular MVLC Library Account. To change your pin, come to the Circulation Desk with your library card or identification.
For assistance with logging into your account, call the Library at 978-388-8148 with your library card number ready.
When you’re ready to download a track, click the “Download Now” link, select Save at the prompt, and designate where you want to save the song. Anytime you click on the “Download now” link, even if you cancel the download, the download counts toward your weekly allotment.
Having trouble finding your band in the Artist Search box?
Find bands that begin with “The” in their name, alphabetized under the letter “T.”
Once in a while, your Internet connection may be interrupted or time out and you might experience an incomplete or problem download. Freegal Music allows you to download previously downloaded songs again, without using up one of your weekly downloads.
