The library is pleased to offer two new services. Freegal™ is downloadable music and offers patrons the opportunity to download five songs per week for free. Patrons keep the songs they download. This music service offers access to more than three million songs including Sony Music’s catalog of legendary artists. The Freegal Music app is free for registered cardholders and is available in the Apple® App Store and Google Play®.
Freading™ is an eBook service that allows patrons who live in Clive to download free eBooks each week. This service provides an additional 24,000 eBooks available for checkout, with 400 new eBooks added each month, and there is no waiting in line to download. This offering is in addition to the current eBooks provided through Wilbor. Freading™ has its own apps for the iPad®, iPhone® and Android™ tablets and phones. It is also compatible with the Kindle Fire, the Nook and the Kobo devices.
