Free Music? On My Internet? It's More Likely (and Legal) Than You Think
Yes, you can get free music, legally, from the Internet. How? Freegal! I just installed the Freegal app on my iPhone, downloaded Foster The People’s "Pumped Up Kicks," and now I’m listening to it. The whole process took less than 5 minutes. What is Freegal? It’s a downloadable music service that will allow you, a MCPL cardholder, to download three free songs a week from its catalog of over 3 million songs.
When I was growing up, the way you listened to music was to tune your dial to the two or three different stations offered on the radio. Nowadays, you can get music from virtually any electronic device.
The first bookmobile in the United States was the brainchild of Mary Titcomb, the librarian for the Washington County Free Library in Maryland, in 1905. Ms. Titcomb believed that the entire county should have access to library books, and with the help of Joshua Thomas and the Library Wagon, she made it happen!
