Danielle's picture

Summer has arrived! I put together a Summer Playlist of songs available to download for free from Freegal. You are able to download 5 songs a week per library card, so I recommend adding songs to your Wish List so you don't forget any! For many of the songs, the link below goes to the album, so you'll have to scroll through the track listing to find the song for your summer playlist.
