How Freegal Music Works:
Library users have a weekly download limit of three (3) songs (or tracks). You will be able to keep track of your downloads in the upper right corner of the site. Every song has a sample clip you can listen to before you download.
The downloads on this site are all in the MP3 format with no DRM. This service will work with any MP3 player, including iPod, and can be loaded into iTunes. It works on both PCs and Macs.
Be sure to check out the browsing areas, especially Artists A to Z (top of page) and the genre lists (menu bar). Click on see all genres to view dozens of categories, or search for favorites in Advanced Search.
A collection of storybooks were on display for several weeks at the library.
Community members were invited to sign the inside covers of the books.
The books will be sent to the Cyrenius H. Booth Library in Newtown, CT, to participate in their
"Books Heal Hearts" program.
Diversified Insurance made a VIDEO to demonstrate Elmore's involvement in the program--click on the link to watch!
