Free Music With Your Library Card

Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System has joined Library Ideas™ network of Public Library websites that offer access to over 11 million songs including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists.

The Freegal™ Music Service will allow the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System to increase the size and diversity of its collection by offering access to over 30,000 music labels from 80 different countries.

Under the terms of the agreement, registered cardholders of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System can download a select number of Freegal Music tracks in the MP3 format each week at no direct cost via www.afpls.org. The Freegal Music Service will also have popular music videos for download, and a streaming music option where library cardholders can access entire albums of music. The library will underwrite the purchase of the music.  

The Freegal Music Service has free mobile apps for registered cardholders of subscribing libraries.  The Freegal Music apps are available in the Apple® App Store, Google Play® and Amazon.com* for the Kindle Fire.

“We are very excited to offer a service like this that delivers great music, compatibility with lots of devices and simplicity of use.  We think this will be incredibly popular with our patrons and will help the library in marketing all its services to the community,” said Dr. Gabriel Morley, Director of the Library System.
