Free Music! New Download Service For Boca Library Users

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A great new service is available — for free — for members of the Boca Library.

The Boca Raton Public Library (BRPL) announces the addition of Freegal music services to the BRPL eLibrary. Freegal is free for all BRPL cardholders. Each library cardholder may download up to three songs per week (156 per year) and keep the songs permanently.

Freegal provides access to more than 100 genres of music, 10,000 record labels, and 12,000 videos. No special software is required to use the service and there are no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. Downloading of songs is completely free and legal for library cardholders.

Songs are downloaded in a universally compatible MP3 format, so they can be saved to any computer, MP3 player and mobile device including Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod. Songs can be downloaded at home or at computer stations in libraries via a USB device, such as a flash drive. One click and songs are saved.

Freegal is available through the BRPL homepage: http://www.bocalibrary.org/

The Freegal music service adds significant resources to the BRPL eLibrary, which already includes eBooks, eAudiobook, and eMagazines. “Adding Freegal is based on the high demand for and use of other eLibrary services,” said Tom Sloan, Manager of Library Services. “Each month, BRPL patrons borrow more than 3,000 eLibrary resources and conduct more than 10,000 licensed database searches,” stated Sloan.

The BRPL eLibrary includes eBooks from bestselling authors including James Patterson, Janet Evanovich, and Bill O'Reilly. Popular eMagazines include Consumer Reports, National Geographic, Cosmopolitan, and US Weekly.

The Boca Raton Public Library provides outstanding library services, resources, and programs that meet the educational, recreational, cultural, and informational needs of library users. For more information about the Boca Raton Public Library, please visit www.bocalibrary.org.
