The Hanson Library now has a subscription to the downloadable music service Freegal which offers access to about 3 million songs, including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists. You just need a Hanson library card, there’s no software to download and no Digital Rights Management (DRM) restrictions. Download up to 3 songs per week and transfer them to any device that supports the MP3 format. Owners of an Apple device (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch) or an Android phone or tablet can download Freegal’s free mobile app by searching for “Freegal Music” in the Apple App Store or Google Play.
To learn more about using this new service, sign up for a tutorial being offered as part of our Next Chapter Internet Cafe Opening. Register for the evening session on Tuesday, July 16 at 6:30 pm or the morning session on Thursday, July 18 at 10:30 am.

I wanted to let you know I downloaded the Freegal app to my Nexus 7. I added Hanson Library (not alphabetical order) and was able to download a song immediately and it went right to my Google Play. Freegal has closed unexpectedly but this app is easy to use. I wish the other library apps were this easy.
Thanks for the feedback Kate. It’s good to know how things are working from the user perspective.
