How to stream music

For most library cardholders, you will have three (3) downloads per week, and twenty-four (24) hours of streaming every day. Counters are in the upper right corner and will keep you informed of your allotments and usage. 

When you put your cursor over an album, you will see a “stream now” button come up. If you press that button on an album, the whole album will play in order. 


Freegal Playlists are lists of pre-selected songs in a genre that you are sure to enjoy. 
You can also create your own playlists for streaming or for selecting titles you intend to download.

To create a playlist
  1. Click on “My Playlists” under “Streaming” on the left side.
  2. Click on “Create and Store Playlists”
  3. At the top center, click on the “+” symbol next to “Saved Playlists”.
  4. Name your playlist (ex. “The Boss”) and describe it (ex. “Bruce”).
  5. In that box, click on “Create New Playlist” and your playlist is ready to add music.
  6. Click on the “Home” page and start looking for music to add.
  7. To add an album, move your cursor over an album cover and a =+ will appear.  Click on that, and then add to your chosen playlist option.
  8. To add an individual song, click on the image until you see a play arrow and =+ sign.  Pressing the =+ will allow you to add the song to your chosen playlist.

How to download songs

  1. When you've found a song you want, click the =+ icon next to the song title and choose "Download now."
  2. At the prompt, select Save and choose where you want to save the song.
  3. If you're not presented with a prompt, try right clicking the link and choosing the option to save the link (i.e. Save Target As, Save Link As, or Download Linked File, etc.). This will let you choose where to save your song. Note: Anytime you click on the "Download" link, even if you decide to cancel or play it, the download will count towards your weekly allotment.
