Free Music and Freegal

BCPL has partnered with Freegal to allow you to download 5 songs per week to the music player of your choice. And, these songs NEVER go away unless you delete them!

All you need to begin is a valid BCPL card with fines under $10.00. Each Monday at midnight, your download total for the week resets, and you’re ready for 3 more songs. It’s as simple as that.
