I received an email from our reader, Howard, with this great freebie for those of you in Multnomah County, Oregon or those in Oregon counties that have reciprocal library privileges:
I was thinking that I ought to tell you about a free download service in which I’ve participated since March 2011. It is called Freegal, and allows you to download 3 songs per week through the Multnomah County library to a PC or Mac for transfer to an iPod, MP3 or whatever. There are over half a million songs available at the website once you register. I’ve downloaded about 170 songs so far since the service began.A Multnomah County library card is required, but because of reciprocal agreements, a resident of Clark or Washington Counties may visit a Multnomah library to get a card. Clackamas County might be in the mix, too, not sure.
Sounds like a great resource! Do any of you have experience with Freegal or other free music download services?
