Freegal is one of my favorite databases. You get free, legal music downloads from artists on the Sony label. That’s thousands of songs, and we’re not talking public domain 16th century maypole dancing music.
It’s not a temporary download, it’s an MP3 file and you keep it! There is no software to download, just the song itself. Every library card holder can download up to three songs per week. To help you choose, you can listen to 30 second samples. It’s like iTunes for the library, but free! Try Freegal today.
