The Library is pleased to announce a new service for music lovers. Freegal allows you to download three songs a week from the Sony Music catalog as well as thousands of other labels.   The song files can be played on any device and are DRM-free, meaning you get to keep the songs forever.  You can browse through popular artists such as Adele, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Pitbull, Brad Paisley, and more!  Free apps are available for iOS or Android devices.
