A Freegal Holiday

With Thanksgiving behind us, Hanukkah drawing to a close, and Kwanzaa, Christmas, and New Year’s  just around the corner, why not celebrate the holidays with some free music from Freegal?

If you haven’t heard of Freegal, it’s one of our digital services. It lets you stream or even download DRM-free mp3s of your favorite songs. Once you download a song, you can keep the mp3 forever. Put it on your phone, your computer, your iPod–wherever you want. It’s yours!

If you have an L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library card, visit https://www.freegalmusic.com/home, hit the login button in the upper right-hand corner, enter L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library as your library name, select said library from the list of options (it should appear as the third option in the list), enter your library card number, your last name, and start listening today.

Cardholders are allowed five downloads per week and there is no limit to streaming music from the collection. You can find songs to celebrate all of your favorite holidays, but here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  1. Kenny Ellis’ “Hanukkah Swings!” is a collection of traditional and contemporary Hanukkah tunes with an enjoyable swing beat.
  2. Fun Songs for St. Patrick’s Day, Chanukah, Christmas & Kwanzaa This collection of 24 songs by The Hit Crew features covers of multiple holiday tunes, including “Happy Happy Kwanzaa” and the comedic “Chanukah Song.” But if you are looking for the original, check out Adam Sandler’s album Eight Crazy Nights, also featured in the Freegal music catalog.
  3. Come On, Santa: A Rockin’ Christmas Playlist This curated playlist features 71 songs from different artists. Tunes by Elvis, indie rock band Low from Duluth, MN, and even a rendition of “Frosty the Snowman” by Fiona Apple can be downloaded and streamed for FREE!
