Hi everyone, here is our weekly recommended listening posting! And for right now, as we are mostly home bound in New York State, I’m going to offer some great listening suggetions via YouTube videos.
And just FYI, you can download three free songs per week and listen to three hours of commercial free music per day, through the library system’s Freegal Music service.
And if you’d like to check out Freegal, you can stream and download music to a computer by accessing the Freegal Music catalog via the following link:
And you can download the Freegal app, from your app store, and listen to the music on your tablet or smartphone. You will need your library card and your PIN (the last four digits of your phone no.) to login.
