Freegal (rhymes with legal) allows you to download 5 songs for free every week and keep them forever. These songs are in the MP3 format and are DRM-free. You can also download music videos from Freegal but each video counts as 2 downloads. Here's how to use Freegal:

  1. Visit freegal.metrolibrary.org.
  2. Select Login and enter the full 8 digits of your library card number and your full last name as your Pin.
  3. Search to find specific songs or videos or tap the Browse button.
  4. Tap the Download/Wishlist button:
  5. Tap Download Now then choose to Save the file.

In the top-right corner, you will see numbers next to a blue music note. This is the notification area that will show you how many of your 5 weekly downloads you have used.

Songs you download via the Freegal site will not automatically sync with the Freegal app in case you have it installed on a mobile device. However, songs you download with the Freegal app will show up as being downloaded when you sign in to the Freegal site.
