FREE music downloads @ WLPL


The West Lafayette Public Library is excited to offer the Freegal music download service to our patrons!

The West Lafayette Library's subscription with Freegal offers YOU free access to millions of song from over 10,000 labels including the Sony Music Catalog.


How Freegal Music Works:

  • Library users have a weekly download limit of three downloads (songs) per week. You will be able to keep track of your downloads in the upper right corner of the site. Every song has a sample clip you can listen to before you download.

  • The downloads on this site are all in the MP3 format with no DRM. This service will work with any MP3 player, including iPod, and can be loaded into iTunes. It works on both PCs and Macs. Check out our new mobile apps for iOS and Android devices!

  • Be sure to check out the browsing areas, especially Artists A to Z (on the "see all genres" page) and the genre lists (menu bar). Click on see all genres to view dozens of categories.

To access Freegal, go to and enter in your Library card number and password. *Please contact the Library if you require assistance.
