Have you tried Freegal yet? No! Now is the time to start. Songs are available in MP3, the standard music file format and will play on any digital device. The files are encoded at the same high quality you'll find on iTunes or Amazon MP3, but they are DRM-free, which means the songs you download are yours forever.
Freegal is a fantastic service, but there is so much available, we provide patron and staff playlists (also available on Pinterest) to help you find something great to download. We'll cover everything from classical to country. To access the library of available music, you will need your Edwardsville barcode and PIN. Scroll to the bottom of our webpage, click on the Freegal link, and away you go! Please be advised that an an entire album will require multiple downloads (patrons are currently allowed 3/week). You can also download a free Freegal app on Apple and Android marketplaces; to use type in '62025' for your location and select Edwardsville Public Library.
We recognize that the search functions are not easy to use in Freegal - they've been improved, but they are still not the greatest - please be patient. If we've listed something here, it should be available. Some staff favorites can not yet be found on Freegal, but are available through SHARE. We will clearly indicate these albums/songs and add a link to our catalog.
