The Jeffersonville Township Public Library has recently subscribed to Freegal® Music, a service that offers patrons the ability to legally download songs (MP3s) and stream music through the Library’s website (www.jefflibrary.org) or via the Freegal® app.
The newest version, Freegal 4.0, will allow cardholders of the Jeffersonville Township Public Library to access over 7 million songs from over 220 musical genres. The complete Sony Music Entertainment catalogue is included, as well as music from over 28,000 recording labels.
Under the terms of the launch, registered cardholders of the Jeffersonville Township Public Library can download up to three MP3 music tracks weekly. Library users are additionally being provided with the ability to freely stream music (entire albums, playlists, etc.) for up to three (3) hours a day as part of Freegal® Music Service’s online music offering.
The Jeffersonville Township Public Library has underwritten the purchase of this service to not only strengthen the Library’s music collection, but to also provide users with digital music content — as most music today is delivered via MP3.
Freegal® also has free mobile apps available in the Apple® App Store and Google Play® so that registered cardholders may also use a smartphone, tablet or MP3 device to download and/or stream music to.
For more information, call (812) 285-5630 or visit the Library’s website at www.jefflibrary.org.
Jeffersonville Township Public Library is pleased to announce a new reciprocal borrowing agreement with New Albany-Floyd County Public Library and Charlestown-Clark County Public Library .
You can now use your Jeffersonville Township Public Library resident card to checkout downloadable eBooks and Audiobooks from the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library and Charlestown-Clark County Public Library. Non-eBooks, movies, and other material can only be checked out if the patron applies for a card with that library.
This agreement will greatly increase the number of downloadable titles. This is in addition to the reciprocal agreement we have for borrowing other materials.
The three library web pages will be linked, but patrons must search each library’s catalog separately. The participating library catalogs can be accessed using the new links on our eBook/ Audiobook home page.
