More than 6 million songs available
Howland Public Library cardholders in Beacon can now stream entire music albums daily through the library’s free online music service, via the Freegal system. The available collection includes more than 6 million songs from 28,000 recording labels in more than 80 countries.
Howland patrons also can still download and keep three music tracks each week, again at no charge. The library is one of 3,500 worldwide that subscribe to the Freegal Music Service. Its subscription came with help from supporters of Beacon Reads Bookstore, at 309 Main St., which is co-managed by Vicki Blucher and Marcia Frahman for Friends of the Howland Public Library. The library gives special thanks to the Friends’ treasurer, Marion Imperatore, for assistance.
