Now with more free music download and streaming sites available to everyone on the Internet, over the past few years significantly fewer library customers are using Freegal through the library, As a result, we have decided to end our subscription to Freegal.
Whether you access Freegal on a computer or through the app, Freegal will no longer be available through Burlington Public Library as of January 30, 2020. If you have created playlists, you will now need to download and save your selected songs to your computer or device before this date.
We understand that this change may be unwelcome news to our Freegal users. Our decision came after careful consideration of the other music options that are freely and widely available to you, in addition to exciting new online resources we now can add to our collection in spring 2020, such as Acorn TV, OverDrive Express (Lucky Day), and the New York Times
As well as the popular free music sites on the Internet below, we encourage you to take a look at the music options available to you through the library on hoopla.
If you have any questions about this change, please do not hesitate to contact us.
