Sounds good: 15 million songs available to stream free from new Kilkenny library service
Kilkenny residents missing out on that live music experience are being offered a library of more than 15 million songs to play, and it’s all for free.
Freegal Music, described as “Spotify for libraries,” is a free music streaming and downloading service now available from Kilkenny County Council Library Service.
Freegal offers access to over 15 million songs and to thousands of music videos from more than 40,000 music labels worldwide including Sony Music, Epic, RCA, and Columbia.
Just like Spotify, it includes a host of playlists and the ability to create your own. Freegal is adding more and more tunes daily as new music is released
Dorothy O’Reilly, Kilkenny’s Senior Executive Librarian says: “People are missing live music and concerts and studies show that listening to music can benefit overall well-being.
“Kilkenny County Council Library Service is delighted therefore to introduce Freegal music service at this time. This service is free and available for library members,” Ms O’Reilly said.
To use the service, members can download the Freegal APP for free through the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store, and Amazon – for Kindle Fire, all that is needed is the your library card and PIN.
People can become library members by going to www.kilkennylibrary.ie or contact Kilkenny Library Services on 056 7794160.
