Summer Music Playlist

We’ve been doing a monthly playlist, featuring songs you can download (5 free each week) using our Freegal service. But, for Summer Reading, we thought we’d do something a little different. Instead of us creating a list we think you’d like, we’re asking you to help us create a list!

Think about “summer songs” – you know, those songs that just scream long days, warm nights, baseball, swimming, and barbecues. The music you listen to on vacation, hanging out in the back yard, or even blasting in the car with the windows rolled down. Find your favorite summer song on Freegal, and then post the title in the comments section of the Summer Music Playlist page. We’ll add it to the page list – with a link – so everyone can find it and enjoy. Posting also helps you to complete one of the tasks on the Adult Summer Reading Comic Panel Chart, which gets you that much closer to winning a prize drawing. How easy is that?

Then, each week, don’t forget to download your 5 free songs so you can create your own custom Summer Music Playlist. Then blast it as loud as you want (or as loud as the kids will let you) this summer!

    Question:

    Has Freegal replaced library acquisition of CDs?

    If so, this seems like a bad idea for many reasons including:

    1. Range of music much more limited.
    2. Each download costs the library money per user, while the cost of each CD is spread over many borrowers.

      Thank you for your questions. Freegal has not replaced our acquisition of CDs, and we invite you to come in and look through our extensive collection. Freegal is a supplemental collection geared to those patrons who are interested in digital copies. If you have any questions, please stop at the Reference Desk.
