Q. How does the Freegal Music website work?
You must have a valid HMCPL library card. Visit My Digital Library, and log in with your library card number and four digit PIN. If you do not know your PIN, ask for a staff member to look it up the next time you visit one of our twelve locations. Once you log in, click on the Freegal music link.
A download usage counter is located in the upper right corner of freegalmusic.com displaying your weekly allotment. For instance, 1/3 means that you have a weekly limit of 3 downloads, and you have used 1 of those downloads. The download counter resets each week at Monday 12:01 AM (Eastern Time, USA).
The site is set up to browse or search for your favorite music or artist. You can use the navigation at the top of the page to browse by keyword, artist, or album; or you can simply use our advanced search page. Freegal Music also offers a collection of Top Download lists on the homepage where users can browse a variety of music selections.
