Freegal Ends December 31, 2021


After much consideration LBPL has decided to stop offering Freegal. It is never easy to eliminate a service, especially one that has been offered for as long as Freegal. The cost to provide Freegal, the competitive commercial market for streaming music, and budget constraints were all factored into the difficult decision to remove it from the LBPL Digital Library.

Any music you have downloaded from Freegal is yours to keep. It does not get deleted from your device simply because Freegal will not be available through LBPL.

If you haven't already, please try some of the other resources in the Digital Library, like Kanopy, OverDrive ebooks and emagazines, the New York Times, Udemy, and Gale Courses, as well as the others.
