Freegal is a downloadable music service from your library. All you need is your Manchester Library card number and your PIN. With access to the Sony Music Entertainment catalog, it offers hundreds of thousands of songs, over 100 genres of music, and more than 50 record labels, all without having to download software or have any digital rights management (DRM) issues to deal with. Access to Freegal is limited to patrons of  the Manchester Public Library.

How Freegal Music Works:

  • Library users have a weekly download limit.  You will be able to keep track of your downloads in the upper right corner of the site. Every song has a sample clip you can listen to before you download.
  • The downloads on this site are all in the MP3 format with no DRM. This service will work with any MP3 player, including iPod, and can be loaded into iTunes.  It works on both PCs and Macs.
  • Click Browse to see what’s Trending, New Arrivals, Artists, Genres and more.
