What is Freegal?
Freegal is a downloadable music service from the Massapequa Public Library. All you need is your library barcode number. Freegal offers access to about 8 million songs, including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists.  There is no software to download, and there are no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. Access to Freegal is limited to the
Massapequa Public Library cardholders.

How much music is on Freegal Music’s website?
There are thousands of artists, tens of thousands of albums, and millions of songs. The Freegal Music website has hundreds of genres of music and is rich in many of them. The content is based upon agreements with over 10,000 music labels, including the labels of
Sony Music Entertainment.

How does Freegal Music work?
A download usage counter is located in the upper right corner of displaying your weekly allotment. For instance, 1/5 means that you have a weekly limit of 5 downloads, and you have used 1 of those downloads. The download counter resets each week at Monday 12:01 AM. You can use the navigation at the top of the page to browse by keyword, artist, or album or try the advanced search page. Freegal Music also offers a collection of Top Download lists where users can browse a variety of music selections.  You can also download music videos, but each download of a music video counts as two downloads. 

Are the songs really free?
Freegal Music and the music you download are free in the sense that most things in your library are free to you as a patron of the library. The service is underwritten by your local library.
