Farewell to Freegal! Library Streaming Service Update

Farewell to Freegal! Library Streaming Service Update

July 13, 2022

Beginning August 10, Freegal Music will no longer be available through Mid-Continent Public Library. Until that date, users can continue to download and keep five songs a week from the free music streaming service, and afterward, any songs that have been downloaded and saved to a device will continue to be available on that device. However, access to music through the Freegal app will not be available any longer after that date.

If you enjoyed using Freegal, be sure to check out the Library’s other streaming music resources, including:

  • Jazz Music Library – Contains thousands of jazz artists, ensembles, albums, and genres
  • Popular Music Library – Offers a wide range of popular music from around the world, including pop, country, Christian, electronic, hip-hop, metal, punk, new age, R&B, reggae, rock, soundtracks, and many more
  • American Music – Includes thousands of tracks of music from America's past, including songs by and about Native Americans, songs from the Civil Rights movement, political campaigns, Prohibition, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, anti-war protests, and more
  • Classical Music Library – A fully searchable, comprehensive database of tens of thousands of distinguished classical recordings
  • medici.tv – Offers access to classical music concerts, operas, ballets, documentaries, and master classes; more than 100 of these performances are streamed live each year!
  • Access Video On Demand – In addition to world-class documentaries, award-winning educational films, and helpful instructional videos, this resource offers a Music and Dance section with a variety of recorded performances and related videos.

You can also explore other free public streaming services, such as Spotify, YouTube Music, and Bandcamp. If you’re new to these platforms, be sure to tune into the Library’s series of instructional videos where staff members will walk through all the ins and outs of using them. These videos will be available on MCPL’s YouTube page.

On September 1, OverDrive Video will also be discontinued from MCPL’s roster of streaming services. Videos checked out from OverDrive Video prior to September 1 will be available through OverDrive’s website until the end of the lending period. If you’re an avid streamer, discover the Library’s other video streaming services on the eMovies webpage, including Access Video On Demand and Just for Kids Access Video! And as always, movies and TV shows can be checked out on DVD and Blu-ray from MCPL branches.

Whether you’re in search of something to read, watch, or listen to, MCPL has you covered!
