What's the difference you ask? The first link is to CDs and audiocassettes found in one of the twenty (20) CMRLS Libraries. The second link? It's FREE music! It's yours! You keep the music on any computer or MP3 device, including smartphones AND you may download five (5) FREE songs each week...every week! Yes, FREE; but you must have a CMRLS Library Card.

AND, there's more that's FREE! Beginning *Oct. 1, 2015, you also have the option to stream three (3) hours of music each day from ready made playlists or those you create on FREEGAL (much like using Pandora or
'heart' Radio) without using your five (5) FREE downloads.

Ask staff to get you started or just download the FREEGAL app from your App Store. It's FREE, also! Then you can begin creating your playlists and downloading FREE music from the 28,000 music labels you'll find on FREEGAL!

FREEGAL also has music videos--and they are FREE, too!

CMRLS Library Card = FREE + LEGAL Music

*CORRECTION: Live streaming will begin on October 25, so get your FREEGAL account set up soon. You'll have access to 9 million songs, 15,000 music videos, and endless playlists that you create yourself. Five (5) free downloads each week and 3 hours streaming each day!
