NEW to the Library - FREEGAL

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.

Setting Your PIN

Under the new SEO system, by accessing your account through our online catalog you can do things such as place requests or renew items. 

To do so, you will be asked to enter your library barcode as well as your PIN.  The default PIN for your account is "changeme."   A staff member can change your PIN or you can elect to access your account by typing in "changeme"  as the PIN and then change your PIN using the "My Account" button.
