The Peggy Helmerich Library will be closed temporarily for light renovation. We anticipate the closure to last several weeks. During the closure, any items you have placed on hold will be sent to Hardesty Library.
Have you downloaded your three free songs this week from Tulsa City-County Library?
To help connect library customers with the music they enjoy, TCCL will begin a six-month pilot program using the downloadable music service Freegal Music, starting Jan. 28. You can find songs from many of today's chart-topping musicians. With dozens of genres and more than 3 million songs from 10,000 music labels, including Sony Music Entertainment, Freegal Music is designed for all musical preferences. New songs and labels are added weekly to keep the selection fresh.
Anyone who lives, works or goes to school in Tulsa County is eligible to apply for a free library card. The card allows all library customers the ability to download up to three songs per week into their iTunes account or to their smartphone, PC, Mac or any other MP3 music player. The best part, customers get to keep each downloaded song forever. Songs are in a high-quality, DRM-free MP3 format. A Freegal App also is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play for downloading on the go.
“With such a huge collection of songs to choose from, we anticipate this service will be a big hit with all ages, especially young people who are accustomed to downloading music to their computers,” said Charlotte Frazier, director of support services at TCCL. “Downloading is easy and, best of all, it’s free for library cardholders.”
This service is funded by the Tulsa Library Trust. After the six-month trial period, TCCL will assess offering this service long-term based on popularity. So, if you like this service, tell all your family and friends.
