AFPL Adds Streaming Music To Its Online Offerings

Avalon Free Public Library, one of the thousands of libraries worldwide that subscribe to the Freegal® Music Service, is now offering patrons the ability to stream entire albums every day as part of its free online music offering.

The new initiative, part of Freegal 4.0, will allow cardholders of the Avalon Free Public Library increased access to over 6 million songs from 28,000 recording labels that originate in over 80 different countries.   Also included is the complete local catalogue of Sony Music Entertainment.

Under the terms of the launch, registered card holders of the Avalon Free Public Library can download a select number of Freegal Music tracks in the MP3 format each week, and stream a select number of hours each day at no direct cost via www.avalonfreelibrary.org. The library will underwrite the purchase of the music.   Also, the Freegal Music Service has over 15,000 popular music videos for download in the MP4 format.

3,500 libraries from all over the world subscribe to the Freegal Music Service, including the Orange County Public Library (FL), The Queens Public Library (NY) and The District of Columbia Public Library.

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 and Google Play®.

We will be putting together AFPL specific tutorials for Freegal’s new streaming service. In the mean time, check out our tutorial on how to download music from Freegal:
