On Saturday, November 7 all 44 Suffolk libraries will be showcasing its free digital music service.

Freegal is a free digital music service offered by Suffolk Libraries that allows customers to download free music direct to their device or computer every week from a catalogue of over six million. Once downloaded you can keep the tracks forever and transfer them into iTunes.

The Freegal Day will involve all the county’s libraries playing music from the Freegal catalogue to promote this free service which has recently been extended to include unlimited music streaming.

Freegal (named because it’s free and legal!) was launched two years ago. Customers are now using the service to download over 4,500 songs a month and stream over 10,000 tracks. There is also an option to download music videos.

The Freegal catalogue features over 6 million tracks including top artists from a wide range of genres and also includes the entire Sony Music catalogue.

Anyone wanting to use the service who hasn’t already got a Suffolk Libraries card can sign up for free online or at any library.

All you need to access Freegal is a Suffolk Libraries membership number.
