Freegal is the Library Item You Can Check Out and Keep
But the Coeur d’Alene Public Library and the other libraries in the Cooperative Information Network do offer one entertainment format that you can check out and keep.
Freegal is a free music service that allows patrons to download up to five songs per week using their library cards and to stream music from its collection of more than 9.5 million songs.
The collection offers more than 200 different genres from 80 different countries. More than a million songs were added in the last year alone. New music is available the same day it shows up in stores or on i-Tunes.
To use Freegal, patrons can go to the website for their home library. No special software is needed, but free Freegal apps are available for Apple and Android devices. The service is only available to library cardholders.
