Download five songs a week for free from The Seattle Public Library


Patrons of The Seattle Public Library can now download five songs a week from its partner vendor Freegal, which maintains over 7 million songs from over 28,000 labels. The previous limit was three songs.


The music includes hits like Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" and Pharrell Williams' "Happy," as well as classics such as Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run," jazz standards like Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" and more.


The music files from Freegal are DRM-free, do not expire, and are compatible with PCs, Macs, iPods, iPads and other MP3-compatible devices. New music is added daily. A Library card is necessary to access and download songs. Library card applications can be completed online by visiting www.spl.org.

Access to Freegal Music on the Library's website has been made possible by The Seattle Public Library Foundation.
