Freegal

Due to declining usage, the library will discontinue Freegal as of October 30, 2018.

What happens now?

You can continue using Freegal as you always have, through October 30. If you wish to save the music you’ve downloaded to the app, we suggest squaring that away before the end date. If you need help, please come to one of our Thursday Open Labs at the Main Library.

What about my music needs going forward?

We recommend checking out the streaming music options available through Hoopla. Hoopla carries music from Warner and Universal, including albums by Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Imagine Dragons, Jay-Z and many more! If Hoopla doesn’t have it, check out our music CD collection which includes a huge selection of artists and albums across genres. We don’t have something you want to check out? Either use this form to suggest we purchase an item for the collection, or browse MelCat to see if we can get it for you from another library.

We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 248-553-6880. Thank you for using the library!
