Freegal Music is a “free and legal” music service that allows downloads and streaming. There are no DRM (digital rights management) restrictions. There are more than 8 million songs from around the world, hundreds of music genres to search from, and new songs regularly added to the database.
The service also presents more than 15,000 music videos in the MP4 format with no DRM. Videos count as 2 downloads because videos are considered premium content. You are limited to 5 downloads a week and 3 hours per day of streaming music. Music downloads are in the MP3 format. Get the free app at the Apple Store, Google Play (for Android), and SlideMe.org (for Kindle Fire.)
Freegal Movies allows users to view up to 3 movies or TV shows per week. Users have 48 hours to watch their selection via streaming. If you don’t watch it then, you will need to wait 6 months until you can check it out again.
Freading allows users to download eBooks. Each eBook in the collection has a token value. Users have 6 tokens to use per week. Freading is compatible with a number of devices and does require an Adobe Digital Editions account. Freading can be accessed by clicking on the Electronic Resources/Books and Reading/Freading link on our website. See the FAQ at https://ndgov.freading.com for more information on compatibility and Adobe Digital Editions, as well as to download titles. Users will have access to titles for two weeks, with an option to renew for an additional two-week period.
Rocket Languages is an online resource to assist people with learning a new language. Each lesson consists of an opportunity to hear the pronunciation and then test your skills. There are currently 11 languages, including English. Rocket Languages can be accessed by clicking on the Electronic Resources/Languages/Rocket Languages link on our website.
