Offaly Libraries is delighted to announce that we are now subscribed to a fantastic music streaming service called The Freegal® Music Service.
Eimear McGinn, Offaly County Librarian is excited to bring this brilliant new digital resource to Offaly Library users and has said “we have chosen to subscribe to it in response to our user requests. We hope it will be widely accessed and help uplift our users during these strange times”.
Studies have shown that listening to music is good for you, it can make you happier, improves your sleep, can strengthen learning and memory and even increase verbal intelligence.
Freegal® is a free music streaming service now available from Offaly Libraries. This new service is available to registered Offaly library members.
The Freegal® Music service allows patrons to access a collection spanning over 15 million songs, music videos and audiobooks from more than 40,000 music labels worldwide including Sony Music, Epic, RCA, and Columbia. Both the app and the website provide an easy-to-use and enjoyable experience. The free application is available for library cardholders and can be downloaded in the Apple® App Store and Google® Play store.
Freegal® is similar to Spotify® or Apple® Music in that it allows you to create playlists and stream great music.
