The new system is called “Freegal” and thousands of libraries across the country are linking up with it to give patrons access to free music downloads. All you need is a library card, an iTunes account, and a listening device.
You can choose from hundreds of thousands of songs for up to three downloads a week to your iTunes account, and then upload them to your iPod, MP3 player, etc. The best part — the songs are yours to keep free of charge.
Library districts all over Colorado are participating — Douglas County, Arapahoe, Aurora, Berthoud, and Boulder, to name a few. Simply use this link www.freegalmusic.com/users/ildlogin to log in with your library card and last name, and go from there.
I plan to keep a running list of songs to download. Happy listening!
