Celebrate Women's History Month with Legendary Voices

If you are unfamiliar with Freegal, it is a service provided through the DC Public Library that allows you to download three mp3s per week, which are then yours to keep forever — they do not need to be returned and they will never expire.

In honor of Women's History Month, check out some of these legendary women and their classic albums!  We have highlighted some great selections here, but you can find more by logging into Freegal with your DC Public Library card here and searching for these and other legendary women artists.
