Library first in state to launch ‘free music’ program

Mercury News – “The Santa Clara County Library has a long history of letting people borrow items, but now the library is actually giving patrons something to keep. At the start of this month, the library system became the first in California to offer residents free music downloads. The county library system, which includes the Cupertino Library, has a new digital music service that lets library card holders search for music and download songs permanently at no charge. The service, Freegal, is an online database that provides access to songs exclusively from Sony Music Entertainment’s catalog of artists. Each library card holder can download three songs each week in MP3 format. The file is permanently saved onto computers, smart phones and other devices with access to the catalog and MP3 capabilities.”
